Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power comes to Amazon in September, and a teaser trailer dropped during the Super Bowl teased a look at what’s to come. Amazon aired the trailer during the Big Game, and you can check it out below.

The trailer reveals the first official footage of the show, the most expensive TV series ever made at a staggering $465 million for the first season. We get looks at several characters from the show including Galadriel (Morfydd Clark), Elrond (Robert Aramayo), the dwarven princess Disa (Sophia Nomvete), and the elf Arondir (Ismael Cruiz Cordova).

The series arrives on September 2nd on the service, with a second season already ordered. Set in the Second Age of Middle Earth, it also stars Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman, and Sara Zwangobani and is described as follows:

The new epic drama brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.

Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared reemergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
