First Look At The Orcs In The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power

We have our first look at orcs in the Amazon Tv Series. They've gone with make up instead of cgi which is definitely the way to go!

As per IGN's twitter accout, we now have a first look at Orcs in The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power! 

Several images were released so head on down to IGN to check them out. 

Along with the images, they released an interview with one of the show's executive producers and head of the production department, Lindsey Weber and Jamie Wilson respectively. 

This is what they had to say about orcs in the show.

“Well, I love Orcs,” Weber began, “I love creature design, so I'm very happy to talk about this stuff. JD and Patrick — the showrunners — the very first page of their bible was about Orcs. They have a real passion for them, they love practical prosthetics and design, and they felt that they needed exploration given that this is the Second Age and thousands of years before the events of the Third Age. It was really important to them to treat them as their own culture and explore their world on its own two legs in its own right.”

"Because this is a wildly different age for the Orcs, with the timing being much earlier than the Orcs we’ve seen on screen up to this point and their numbers being so diminished, it was important that they look and feel different from the creatures we already knew."

“We spent a lot of time talking about what it would mean to be an Orc in the Second Age,” Weber says. “It felt appropriate that their look would be different, part of a wilder, more raw, Second Age, Middle-earth, closer to where the First Age ends. As we meet them, they're not yet organized into armies, they're a little more scattered and they've been scavenging. So it's just a different time in their total story.”

In terms of the comparsions to the orcs we see in the films vs the tv show, this is what they had to say, “They [the Orcs] kind of disappeared,” notes Wilson. “Everyone thought, ‘Yay, they've been wiped off Middle-earth.' But really they regressed into the dark in small little groups, and hid away, and lived in tunnels and sort of under Middle-earth, because the only way they could hide, because of course they were hunted for so long. So this is really them coming back out as they reform under a so-called new leader who's going to lead them forward.”

Teasing new characters and a little hint to her favourite scene in the show, she had this to say, "

“There's some female Orcs that I truly loved,” she said. “But there's one Orc in particular, who's very, very tall and strong, who has a particularly enjoyable fight with one of our Elvin characters that I suspect will be, or hope will be a favorite among fans.”

When asked whether wed see the creation of the orcs, all with but a smile , the response was, “Well, that would just be telling you too much,”
