Scheduled for September 2, 2022, the series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power continues to reveal itself with information that may offend fans of the films of peter jackson. We tell you everything!
Orcas like you’ve never seen them before
The summer of 2022 will be a milestone for all fantasy fans. While the manga Berserk is preparing to resume its publication one after the death of the great Kentaro Miura (a first visual has also been published recently), fans are eagerly awaiting the launch of House of the Dragonspin-off of the HBO series Game Of Thronesand The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Powerstreamed on Amazon.
Several months after the release of the first teaser, Prime Video seems to be taking its time before the release of a real trailer. But Over the past few weeks, we’ve been treated to a shower of exclusive images, the latest of which, released yesterday, lifted the veil on what Orcs might look like. in the series produced by Juan Antonio Bayona.
Moreover, the series Rings of Power will innovate, daring to do what New Zealand director Peter Jackson never did in either of his two trilogies, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. In effect, during an interview with the American media IGNexecutive producer Lindsey Weber and head prosthetist Jamie Wilson spoke about the presence of female Orcas. Weber indeed pointed out:
There are female Orcs that I like very much.
Information that will greatly surprise fans, considering that Peter Jackson’s films have never shown female Orcas. Besides, they are not explicitly mentioned in JRR Tolkien’s books. At most we learn in The Silmarillion than Orcs”reproduced as the Children of Illuvatar” (Elves and Men), which would mean that they would have sexual relations. It is also known that Gollum ate an Orc child, another proof of their evolution. Tolkien had indeed noted the existence of female Orcs in a letter dating from October 1963, in response to questions from a certain Miss Munby.
If this confidence shows all the knowledge that the showrunners have of Tolkien’s work, it remains to be seen how Orc women will be represented. Will they be fundamentally different from males? Otherwise, revealing too much about their organization and their way of life could well be a weaknessgiven that the laconic aspect of our knowledge of Orcs contributes to the terror they arouse.
