    Some key takeaways:

    * The Rings of Power, set within Tolkien's Second Age, will
    juggle 22 stars and multiple storylines, from deep within
    the dwarf mines to the elven kingdom of Lindon. Here, the
    adventures of the fellowship are still some 2,000 years in
    the future.



    and they will have black dwarfs! yes!

    i'm hoping for trans dwarfs too


    In Spanish forum Forocoches they are already calling this series "The Lord of the Nig's" (El Seor de los Negrillos, instead of EL Seor de los Anillos).

    Purists are bothered because acording to the source material, the only blacks known in the Middle Earth wwere the Hradrim from the far South.

    They say the last inheritor from Tolkien's IP who cared for the purity of the franchises and didn't want to license series if they were not faithful to the source material died recently, and the next in line are said not to care and to sell happily for any price they want to name. I have not verified these claims.

    okay maybe i will get my trans dwarfs with tits and dicks then.

    There will also be elves of colour despite the race being canonically white.


    The black elves must be the ones that were kept in the oven a bit longer than adviseable while they were manufacturing them.
