Aragorn Vs Sauron: The Original ROTK Ending

I’m not too sure where this comes from, but the video originated here on YouTube. It shows the original scripted ending with Aragorn at the Black Gate, fighting Sauron. This was in the original screenplay I received back in 1999-2000. It was conceived, story boarded, shot and edited and it almost made the final cut. However in the end Sauron was edited out and a CGI cave troll was added in. This was either done to keep in line with the books or for some other unknown reason. Take a look at what would have been!

    This is from the extras in the extended edition, isn’t it? Looks like they edited out the unfinished storyboarded scenes and added music. PJ explains there why they did not use it.

  3. It came from the supplements to the extended Return Of The King DVD, but with poorly chosen music added in.

    I’m sorry for the guy who played Sauron.

    This is a montage from scenes of the prologue (Isildur) and the battle in front of the black gate. This CANNOT be the original ending because in that Sauron was to be seen as ANNATAR, Lord of Gifts, his former beautiful (but evil) self.

    Check back if you like, but it’s shameful that this nonsense was posted here where LOTR and Tolkien experts are.

    I agree with Jeremiah, this is an edit of the various snippets from the documentaries on the extended edition DVDs and the actual footage from the extended edition movie. I don’t think that anything beyond editing was ever done for that original concept, and I’m not certain about even that. Certainly it wouldn’t have had specials and sound added. It was storyboarded and shot, but editing and postproduction is doubtful.

    i don’t understand if it’s a fake video or not. Please someone could answer me. Thanks a lot!

    the music was cool but it didn’t really fit it wasn’t epic enough for the Lord of the Rings

    It was Annatar at first, while speaking promises to aragorn, and then he was to be revealed as Sauron
