I had the honor of screening the highly anticipated new Prime Video series Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power and was immediately intrigued by the elven sorceress Galadriel played by actress Morfydd Clark.
Choose not the path of fear, but that of faith.
She reminds me of the women in the Bible that God used to lead and save their people like Deborah.
Deborah is one of the most influential women of the Bible. She is known for her wisdom and courage and is the only woman of the Old Testament who is known for her own faith and action, not because of her relationship to her husband or another man….
Like Deborah, Galadriel is strong and courageous and relied on her faith to guide her in leading her people in the fight against darkness,
My brother gave his life hunting the enemy, his task is now mine.
Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power episode one opens with Galadriel on a mission to rid the world of evil after the death of her brother and the light that once constantly shined on her country now dimmed by Sauron.
The catch is the rest of the world seems to think the evil is gone, but she still feels it in her heart. To her it’s not gone, it’s resting…waiting on the right time to attack and she will be ready, because you have to protect peace constantly.
This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the farthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
Premiering exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories around the world in 32 languages on Friday, September 2, with new episodes available weekly.
