Sauron on a fiery backdrop


How Sauron In Rings Of Power Season 2 Connects To The LOTR Timeline
A new rumor from fan site Fellowship of Fans' Twitter page may point to how Sauron in "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" can draw a connection with the original trilogy.
The exclusive scoop states, "Gavi Singh Chera will play 'SAURON' in THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER Season 2."
The scoop goes on to add that Chera "will play the original form version of the character which is meant to be 'angelic' and 'ethereal' per sources."
If true, fans may see a diversified, shapeshifting Sauron for Season 2, making it easier to connect his "Rings of Power" story to the original "Lord of the Rings" timeline.
Sauron can presumably continue to assume the more angelic and otherworldly iteration of the Dark Lord for the remainder of the Second Age story.
According to the source material, Sauron still has to conquer most of Middle-earth, assemble his Ringwraith servants, wipe out Elven kingdoms, and lose a couple of wars.
He also has to seduce the Númenóreans into an Atlantis-like fate, where he’ll lose his beautiful physical appearance, causing him to only take terrifying forms ever after.
Only after all of that can the show set the stage for the survivors of the Númenóreans to challenge Sauron back on the mainland.
And that brings viewers to the War of the Last Alliance, which is the showdown depicted in the opening minutes of Peter Jackson's "The Fellowship of the Ring" movie.
