Lord of the Rings- Return of the King Really Needed All Those Endings

Considering Éowyn’s main character arc was to fall in love with Aragorn and then abandon that doomed love, her search for romantic happiness should indeed have been a large part of the theatrical cut of the film. And it also gives poor old Faramir a nice ending, finding a new family after he’s lost everything over the course of three movies.

Even worse is the complete absence of an ending for Saruman and Wormtongue. Among these were the main antagonists The Fellowship of the Ring And Two towersBut they never even appear in the theatrical cut Return of the King. As far as moviegoers are concerned, Saruman and Wormtongue are locked in Orthanc’s tower, guarded by Treebeard, and that’s the end of it. But any sci-fi and fantasy fan knows that any villain who’s just locked up isn’t going to stay there, especially not a powerful wizard.

So when the chief fiends came home from battle, they found Saruman in charge. So the four hobbits had to raise a rebellion against him. It would be a really far-fetched ending, complete with another action sequence and having to move on to another mini-fight after we’ve said goodbye to Aragorn and the others all together.

However, the extended edition provides a truly effective, satisfying ending that aligns with the book where it counts. Placed towards the beginning rather than the end of the movie, we don’t see Saruman and Wormtongue escape or go to the Shire, but we do see Wormtongue stab Saruman in the back and then shoot him to death, as he appears in the film. book. And since Christopher Lee was a spy in World War II, it comes complete with an accurate depiction of what it feels like to stab someone in the back. Peter Jackson Explains on DVD extras.

This wouldn’t have added a lot to the ending of the movie already, as it appears early in the movie and instead gives us an early action scene. Also, Treebeard calls Gandalf “young Master Gandalf”, which is just brilliant.
