Newcomer Sara Zwangobani's Marigold Brandyfoot is featured prominently in the trailer, as she kicks off the narration: "Elves have forests to protect, dwarves their mines, men their fields of grain. But we Harfoots have each other."
The trailer also gives fans a glimpse of some of the realms that will be featured in the eight-part series.
This includes the Elven realms of Lindon and Eregion, the Dwarf kingdom of Khazad-dûm, as well as the Southlands, the Northernmost Wastes, the Sundering Seas, and the island kingdom of Númenór.
The prequel takes place thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien's iconic novels, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will follow a different storyline that will introduce fans to the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth's history.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premieres September 2 on Amazon Prime Video.
