The Rings of Power composer reassures skeptical fans

The composer behind The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power fans are sure to enjoy the upcoming Amazon Prime Video series despite the skeptic segments.

Bear McCreary, known for his musical contributions to series like stranger Y The Walking Dead, spoke to TVLine about his take on the future reception of the power rings. “I understand that fans are hesitant to hug The Rings of Power” McCreary said. “For a long time, it was just, ‘Who from the movies is there?’ And then they’re not, so ‘I don’t trust you,'” McCreary wrote for all eight episodes of Season 1, and viewers will be able to hear his work in the first two episodes after the show debuts in September.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, and depicts the events leading up to Sauron’s rise to power and the making of the notorious One Ring. That object, of course, is the centerpiece of both JRR Tolkien’s novels and Peter Jackson’s two film trilogies. Before viewers get ahead of themselves, though, Amazon Studios’ synopsis for the upcoming series neatly explains how it’s set thousands of years earlier. The Hobbit Y The Lord of the rings.

Weather the rings of power not directly related to Jackson’s cinematic masterpieces, the writers insist that the series correlates strongly with Tolkien’s novels. McCreary confirms the credibility of the writing team. “The person who writes is definitely the right person, the actors, the editors and me,” he says. The work of the creatives will be manifested through a gigantic cast, some of whom will play familiar characters. Saint Maud star Morfydd Clark plays Galadriel, Game of Thrones actor Robert Aramayo will play Elrond and Arrow star Cynthia Addai-Robinson appears as Míriel. Other cast members include Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, and Nazanin Boniadi.

As The Lord of the rings is dear to the hearts of many fans, with some pondering how the series’ lore will be portrayed in the television adaptation. Clark, a confessed Lord of the Rings A fan herself, she admitted she was surprised by how Galadriel, famously played in the Jackson movies by Cate Blanchett, was written for The rings of power. Despite fan concerns, McCreary believes the team is doing the series adaptation justice. “He’s going to surprise the fans in a nice way,” McCreary said. “I think we made it. We made the show I want to see.”

While McCreary is known for hypnotizing folk tunes throughout Stranger, hopes to bring a similar appeal to the music of The rings of power. McCreary draws on the British and Celtic folk influences of Howard Shore, the composer of The Lord of the rings movies, but also adds its own style. “I also wanted something that was more nomadic that would take me to another place, and I used percussion from West Africa,” McCreary said. While music is often dismissed as a minor element in productions, it can make or break a series or movie. Thus, the pressure weighs especially on McCreary.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premieres on Prime Video on September 2.
