The kingdom of Lindon is a beautiful place. It has a lush forest of trees with golden leaves. But it can’t be found on a real map. Until recently, it existed only in the Lord of the Rings books by J.R.R. Tolkien. On September 2, Lindon comes to life in a new Amazon TV show. It’s called Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. In the books, Lindon was built by elves. But it was brought to life on a stage by talented artists and engineers.
The Lord of the Rings series takes place in Middle Earth. This fantasy world is full of elves, dwarves, hobbits, humans, and more. It’s one of the most famous fictional places of all time. Because it’s so well-known, people already have ideas about what it looks like, says production designer Ramsey Avery. That made creating the locations in the show an exciting challenge
Six movies have come out based on the books. But The Rings of Power is a totally new story. It’s based on the background history that Tolkien wrote but never published in a full novel. Many of the locations in the story, including Lindon, aren’t described completely. In fact, Lindon is only mentioned in footnotes in the books.
