    5 seconds in, it almost sounds like the Force theme.

    The narration voice is kind of weak. Especially compared to Cate Blanchett saying almost the exact same words.

    Would probably prefer a movie (or trilogy) than a series, but we’ll see.

    The discourse for the show is going to be amazing. Twitter has made it clear.

    Oooh. This is a nice teaser. Its got me. And the Title makes sense cause this age revolves around the Rings of Power and when they were made. :) and I know this is what we've seen in the prologue of FOTR but ... how these words will fit into the prologue themselves in this version of Amazon, we'll have to wait and see.

    Also, this is what TORN posted on their website...

    Can't wait to seeing the reactions when season 2 moves out of New Zealand.

    Looks and sounds fan made, and no offense to the voice actor, but she's no Cate Blanchett.

    I'd say that's pretty unlikely. I'd say at most we get some brief footage of Morgoth in the War of Wrath; something along the lines of what we saw of Sauron in the Last Alliance at the beginning of FotR. It seems pretty clear at this point that this is almost, if not entirely, about the 2nd Age; well after the death of Beren, Luthien, Turin, Huan, etc.

    Could do flashbacks of Sauron's earlier life. Or just take liberties and place Morgoth in the 2nd Age.

    If he does show up I want him to be massive. Not just 8'. More like 50'. Similar to Snoke's hologram in The Force Awakens. The smallest he should be is the size of Surtur in the opening scene of Thor Ragnarok.

    I seriously, SERIOUSLY doubt they have the rights to play with the time frame of the characters (esp someone like Morgoth) in that way. That would shatter canon and there's just no way the estate would allow that. It would also shrink the main villain of the 2nd Age......ain't gonna happen. If they do show Morgoth in the way I suggested, they will also have to show Orome, Tulkas, the Eagles of Manwe (Thorondor), Mandos, and others. THAT would be ultra cool. The battle between Earendil and Ancalagon the Black and the breaking of the towers of Thangorodrim could be in there, but they might not go into that much detail. I'd love to see that battle. Ancalagon was the greatest of the winged dragons and could have been bigger than a football field.

    So this is just selected parts from the Silmarillion?

    I think this series is based on the 2nd Age and the Alkallabeth. The Silmarillion is based mainly on the Elves of the 1st Age; although certainly the Edain played major roles in it also.
