“Tolkien Turning In Grave”: Elon Musk Not Impressed With Amazon’s Rings of Power

Elon Musk Roasts ‘The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power’: “Tolkien Is Turning In His Grave”

Prequels to beloved fantasy tales seem to be popular right now. The Rings of Power, the Lord of the Rings prequel, has been eagerly anticipated by the public. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, did not seem to be as pleased with the 50-hour television series. The millionaire tweeted, “Tolkien is twisting in his grave.” In a subsequent tweet, he said, “Almost every male character so far is a coward, a jerk, or both.”

Only Galadriel is courageous, wise, and kind. Musk doesn’t seem to have been impressed by Amazon’s $1 billion wager on “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.” The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit author J.R.R. Tolkien’s legendary stories from the Second Age of Middle Earth’s history are brought to life for the first time on television in this miniseries, which is set thousands of years before the events described in his two novels.

Instead, the enthralling images have persuaded the online community that viewing it on a tiny screen would be a grave mistake since it was designed for a large screen. The two episodes provide a preview of the majority of the kingdoms that the eight-part series will take viewers to, including the island kingdom of Nmenór, the elven realms of Lindon and Eregion, the dwarven realm of Khazad-dûm, the Southlands, the Northernmost Wastes, and the Sundering Seas.

The images have received praise from Twitter users. “Just completed the first episode of #RingsOfPower. Overall, I really liked it, and it’s a sight to look at,” a Twitter user said.

The first two episodes of “Rings of Power,” which was created by J.A. Bayona, Wayne Che Yip, and Charlotte Brandstrom, received 25 million views, making it Prime Video’s most successful launch ever, according to The Hollywood Reporter. By October 14, the first season’s eight episodes will have concluded. In accordance with Amazon’s five-season arrangement with the Tolkien estate, the second season of “The Rings of Power” is reportedly already in production.
