The invited guests from Spain and overseas included social media influencers who are dedicated to J.R.R. Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings - the likes of Bernard Torelló (known on social media as Kai47), who has several hundred thousand followers, and Marcel Aubron-Bülles (Thetolkienist). Members of the Tolkien Society were also invited. The guests travelled to Mallorca especially for the event.

The trailer also went out during the Super Bowl, the most-watched television programme in the US each year.
