Amazon Prime Video hits the gas with The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. The ambitious series based on the work of JRR Tolkien advances its premiere date, which will be launched at dawn from September 1 to 2. In addition, this debut will come with the launch of a double episode with which the platform puts all the meat on the grill, in addition to showing what the calendar will be for the first season.
