Sophia Nomvete Is Portrayed As A Disa In “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”

Sophia Nomvete will play Princess Disa in Amazon Studios’ upcoming fantasy series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. The series is a prequel to the film trilogy The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, both based on the works of JRR Tolkien. The Rings of Power is a prequel to the film series that takes place a thousand years before the events of The Hobbit.

Disa is the princess of the dwarven city of Khazad-dum. While the character’s roots in Tolkien’s novels are uncertain, a Lord of the Rings fan website believes that Disa’s character, like Bronwyn Nazanin Boniadi, was invented for the express purpose of the series. On Thursday, September 1, 2022, at 6:00 PM PT/9:00 PM ET, the first two episodes of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will be released on Amazon Prime Video.
