Second Age confirmed! LOTR Amazon Series

Ladies and Gentleman, we have the island of Númenor!

LOTRonPrime tweeted earlier today an update to their interactive Middle-earth map … and a confirmation that the series will, in some way, reference the Second Age.

With the inclusion of Númenor, and the news that we will be seeing a young Aragorn and his adventures, could this mean we are going to see a Dúnedain origin story with flashbacks to the Númenóreans? That would be simply brilliant! 🙂

Not only that, but the map clearly indicates Tol Morwen, Tol Fuin and Himling, which – to anyone who has read The Silmarillion out there – will know their histories.

This is getting more and more impressive, and it seems we’re getting a series that will delve into way more backstory, and deeper into the past of Middle-earth than I think any of us could have imagined.

Exciting times ahead!

  1. If it’s Second Age, there can’t be a “young Aragorn” – he’s not even born until late Third Age, just before the events of the Hobbit. Numenor though has a lot to offer.

    • If rumours be true about the possibility of a young Aragorn, then it could either be in the form of a flashback to the Second Age and the beginnings of the Dunedain from Numenor or else some kind of flashforward to the Ranger…. who knows, we’ll wait and see 🙂

  2. Now that Game of Thrones (but not ASOIAF) is over, maybe more will be heard about what is going to happen to stories about Arda & the Second Age. I really do hope the legendarium is not going to be ruinec.
