The Orcs of the Second Age of Middle-earth will be different from those that lived in the Third Age, which was shown to us by Peter Jackson in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. This was stated by series producer Lindsey Weber and head of makeup Jamie Wilson in an interview with IGN.

Orcs in “Rings of Power” will be more feral. They will also have fair skin and fewer scars.

After the War of Wrath at the end of the First Age, the orcs were practically destroyed. The survivors broke into small groups and hid in the darkness of caves and dungeons.

But this does not mean that there will be no warriors among them. Viewers will see a spectacular fight between one of the elves and a very tall and powerful orc, as well as a new leader who will try to form
a combat-ready army out of barbarians.

Promising for fans of the franchise and the promise of the producer to show not only the creation of the first orcs, but also female orcs.

A few words about the special effects. After all, the orc actors in “Rings of Power” tried to dress in special costumes and make-up, which are qualitatively different from those used in the trilogy. But in crowd scenes, computer graphics were also used.

The creators assure that they love “their orcs”, because for them this is the construction of a new culture and history of an entire race.

Recall that “The Lord Rings: Rings of Power” will begin airing on Prime Video on September 2, 2022. It will have eight episodes. In total, they plan to release five seasons of the series.

As the editors of ProShoKino reported, The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power is recognized as one of the most expensive series and will cost the creators more than 465 million dollars. The release date for the adventure game The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been announced.
