Amazon Studios released a new teaser for the highly-anticipated originals TV series, "Lord of the Rings" has been released.

The series features Morfydd Clark as a much younger version of Galadriel, who was played by Cate Blanchett in Peter Jackson’s movies of JRR Tolkien’s novels.

Viewers were also introduced to a first look at the various realms of Middle Earth that will feature in the series including the Dwarven realm Khazad-dûm and the Elven realms of Lindon and Eregion.

The footage also featured the first glimpse of characters from the island kingdom of Númenor including Isildur (Maxim Baldry), Elendil (Lloyd Owen), and Queen Regent Míriel (Cynthia Addai-Robinson).

In the trailer, Galadriel warns Elrond, played by Robert Aramayo – best known as playing a young Eddard Stark in Game of Thrones –that: “The enemy is still out there, the question now is where.”

Clark rose to fame in 2019 in the horror drama "Saint Maud", which earned her a nomination for best actress at the British Independent Film Awards and the Bafta rising star award.

She also starred in "The Falling", "Pride and Prejudice", "Zombies", and "The Personal History of David Copperfield".

The series is set in Middle-earth’s Second Age and will take place thousands of years before the events of J. R. R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” books and will follow new and old characters, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.

The fantasy series also stars Sir Lenny Henry, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Ema Horvath, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Charles Edwards, and others.

It is considered the most expensive show of all time, with the first season costing an estimated $465 million.

The first installment of the series was filmed in New Zealand and it was announced in August 2021 that production would move to the UK for the second season.
