Amazon’s new Lord of the Rings series has set its main cast!

Robert Aramayo, Nazanin Boniadi, and Owain Arthur will all be starring in the new show, Variety reports.

Rounding out the cast are Tom Budge, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, and Charlie Vickers. J.A. Bayona is set to direct multiple episodes.

“After undertaking an extensive global search, we are delighted finally to reveal the first group of brilliant performers who will take part in Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings series,” said showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. “These exceptionally talented women and men are more than just our actors: they are the newest members of an ever-expanding creative family that is now working tirelessly to bring Middle-earth to life anew for fans and audiences worldwide.”

Production will begin in February.

Not much is known about the plot of the Lord of the Rings series except that it will look into new storylines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Fellowship of the Ring.” The show’s official Twitter account posted a map along with the messages: “One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them, In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie” and “Welcome to the Second Age.”
