This tranquil video feels like a lovely gift to tide us over until The Lord of the Rings TV series premieres on Amazon on September 2, 2022. The new show explores Middle-earth thousands of years before the events in J.R.R. Tolkien‘s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings novels. We’ll see new and familiar faces confront the “long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.”

Created by Patrick McKay and John D. PayneThe Lord of the Rings series sports a massive cast, including Benjamin WalkerMorfydd ClarkCynthia Addai-RobinsonLenny HenryMaxim Baldry and Peter Mullan

You can stream The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies on HBO Max. 

Now, if you’ll need me, I’ll be finding serenity in the sweeping hills of the Shire and maybe, just maybe, embarking on a grand adventure to destroy the One Ring. 

Take a gander at HBO Max’s “Relax in Middle-earth” video for some much-needed relaxation this holiday season.
