Viewers can expect the series to go into major events that the book covers, and more events that fans of the books will recognise.

Despite this, the series is beginner-friendly, and new watchers will find it easy to get immersed into The Rings of Power, which has already gotten an 83% on Rotten Tomatoes, and has been praised by movie critics.

Episodes will air on Fridays at 9am on Amazon Prime, which is available in Singapore. So, if you’ve never watched a Lord of the Rings movie or are a diehard fan – easily stream Rings of Power and be immersed in the incredible imaginings of J. R. R. Tolkien and enjoy your fantastical trip into Middle Earth. 

And if you’re a fantasy fan, check out Game of Thrones’ House of the Dragon, which is fairly different in tone from The Rings of Power, but just as binge-worthy.
