Jeff Bezos thanks the people in charge of "The Lord of the Rings" for not using his notes. The founder of Amazon's son also told him,
"Dad, don't mess this up." Even more exciting news about The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power came out of the UK premiere of the show on Tuesday night.
Jeff Bezos, the boss of Amazon and a person with no experience as a showrunner, said that the people in charge of the prequel series did the right thing by ignoring his notes.
"Every showrunner's dream, and I mean every showrunner's dream, is to get notes on scripts and early cuts from the founder and executive chairman," Bezos said (via Variety).
"They really liked it. I need to thank you both for listening to me when it was helpful, but I need to thank you most for ignoring me when it was best. "
Even Bezos's son had notes, but they were for Bezos. Bezos said, "My kids are now Tolkien fans, too. And after Amazon got involved in this project, my son came up to me one day,
looked me straight in the eyes, and said, "Dad, please don't screw this up." The UK premiere was held at the Odeon Luxe theatre in London's Leicester Square.
The first two episodes were shown. In January, showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay said, "The Rings of Power brings together all the major stories of the Middle-Second Earth's Age:
the making of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic story of Nmenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men.
" People have only seen the story of the One Ring on screen up until now, but before there was one, there were many.
We can't wait to tell you the most epic story of them all. " In the series, Morfydd Clark plays Galadriel, Robert Aramayo plays Elrond, and Maxim Baldry plays Isildur.
Two new episodes will be available on Prime Video on Thursday at 6 p.m. PT.
