The Lord of the Rings is one of the most phenomenal Hollywood movie franchises. This trilogy, which adapts the story of the legendary novel by JRR Tolkien, has won 17 Oscar awards. Where it has made the franchise known as one of the most influential movie series of all time. Thanks to his success, to this day fans are still curious about what is in the universe.
Although the main story has ended with the victory of the creatures of Middle-Earth over Sauron, but there are still many things that fans can enjoy from the story of TLOTR. One of them is a prequel story to the Second Age that Amazon will tell through their upcoming series, The Rings of Power. Still adapting the story from the same novel, this series will again show the iconic races of Middle-Earth. Including the Hobbits who were recently seen in the latest photos of the series.
Hobbit Appearance in Lord of the Rings
This exclusive photo from Empire Magazine shows the first appearance of three Harfoot Hobbits in the TLOTR: The Rings of Power series. In addition to the character Sadoc Burrows (Lenny Henry) who stands in the middle, the two possible Harfoots beside him are Nori Brandyfoot (Markella Kavenagh) and Poppy Proudfellow (Megan Richards).
In the original novel, Harfoot is one of the three types of Hobbits in Middle-Earth. They are known to have a shorter body than the other two types of Hobbits, namely Stoor and Fallohide. We can see the characteristics of Harfoot itself from the Hobbits who appear in the TLOTR trilogy. In addition to having a shorter or smaller body, they also have darker skin and are not beard.
Given their very important role in the TLOTR trilogy, maybe the Hobbits in this series will also have a sizeable portion in the universe. We’ll prove it later, when The Rings of Power series premieres on Amazon Prime Video on September 2, 2022.
