How long is an episode of Rings of Power?

The opening episode is listed at 65 minutes on Amazon. This puts the individual episodes at a similar level to that of the hit series “Game of Thrones” or the newly launched prequel series “House of the Dragon” with around 65 to 70 minutes per episode.

Amazon confirms that the episodes will be unlocked simultaneously everywhere in the world. This means that the first two episodes will be available from 3 a.m. onwards.

Incidentally, the motivation for the adjustment with the double episode at the beginning could be due to the fact that Game of Thrones: House of the Dragon will launch on October 23 with the final tenth episode.

Amazon apparently didn’t want the Rings of Power finale to run on October 21, because that would have been in the same week as the GoT finale. Anyway, now the grand finale is running a week earlier.

What is The Rings of Power about?

So we’ll see the respective episodes of the LotR prequel, which takes us to the Second Age of Middle Earth, set thousands of years before The Lord of the Rings, a week early.

The Silmarillion, the prologue of the LotR novel, and J.R.R. Tolkien’s further notes tell of the rise and fall of Númenor, and we learn how the One Ring was forged by Sauron. A reunion with Galadriel, Elrond and Isildur is already confirmed.
