Tom Bombadil makes its entrance

Launched with fanfare in September 2022, the first season of the seriesThe Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Powerwas a big disappointment for many fans. Despite some of its obvious qualities – notably its high-quality artistic direction – the series has attracted a lot of attention. very strong reactions, in particular because of the numerous deviations taken from the lore of J.R.R. Tolkien. Furthermore, his writing and rhythm were far too uneven. In this, the series suffered from comparison with the excellent seriesHouse of the Dragon, the first spin-off ofGame of Thrones, broadcast on HBO during the same period.

While the two fantasy series will replay the match this summer, with a few months difference , the Amazon Prime Video series must prove its value. The showrunners, who following the bad reviews of season 1 had declared wanting to correct their mistakes to offer the most satisfying spectacle possible, seem aware that their best solution lies in Tolkien's lore. At least that's what these official and exclusive images published byVanity Fairseem to show.

We can see The Stranger in the company of Tom Bombadil, one of the most mysterious and powerful characters in J.R.R. Tolkien's universe. Appearing inLa Fraternityé of the Ring, the character was absent from Peter Jackson's films. This will therefore be his first live-action appearance. As a reminder, although its nature has never been Truly explained by Tolkien, it seems that Tom Bombadil is a Maia (like the Istari and Sauron), in the service of Yavanna. As a reminder, in the novel, he is the one who frees Merry and Pippin from the Old Man-Willow, before saving the Hobbits from the Barrows. Finally, remember that he is insensitive to the effects of the One Ring.

Performed by the British actor Rory Kinnear (Penny DreadfulSkyfall), this version of Tom Bombadil however appears less fanciful than the one of the novel. Indeed,J.R.R. Tolkien describes the person to us as a being with both jovial and extravagant, as evidenced by his clothes (a hat with a feather, yellow boots, a blue jacket). We are in any case very curious to discover Tom Bombadil in season 2 ofRings of Power
