The Rings of Power is come to transport us from Westeros to Middle-earth, so it's time for the Tolkienites to geek out!
CNN has produced a guide for followers of Lord of the Rings with varying degrees of knowledge, so not everyone who gets lost is.
The action takes place thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit and 'The Lord of the Rings' books, according to Amazon, in the Middle-Second earth's Age.
The series will also cover the "epic tale" of Numenor, an island nation of Men that Sauron controls, as well as the Last Alliance of Elves and Men when the two races banded together to battle Sauron.
The forging of the rings and the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron are, of course, the most significant events of this era.
The Silmarillion, a compilation of tales from Middle-earth and the larger fictitious world that Tolkien wrote and his son Christopher edited after Tolkien's passing, served as an inspiration for the new series.
But the August debut of "House of the Dragon" provided entertainment for "Thrones" enthusiasts.
After years of production and fan speculation, Amazon's opulent and much-anticipated prequel to "The Lord of the Rings" has finally made its debut.
In other words, before things become dark, we'll start the prequel series in a relatively peaceful and prosperous environment.
