The Rings of Power Season 2 Continues A Big Retcon To A Key Tolkien Elf Character

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power's season 2 set photos reveal a continued retcon regarding Elven lore. The Prime Video series significantly changed the nature of the Elves' arrival in Middle-earth in season 1, making it seem as if Galadriel's people, the Noldor, had valiantly set sail from Valinor to defend their home from Morgoth. This was not the case in Tolkien's The Silmarillion, where the selfishness of the Noldor's king, Fëanor, had led to the people's exile. For this reason, Fëanor's reputation among the Elves of Middle-earth was far from positive, but this isn't how The Rings of Power has approached the story.
