The original adaptation of the original novel can be said in the Lord of the Rings movie, and most of the content honestly restore the essence of the original. However, director Peter Jackson revealed in his biography that a more brutal version of “The Lord of the Rings” was coming to an end, under which he had to take Fredo cold to retrieve the Lord of the Rings. Will kill the guru.
At the time, the idea was that Frodo had become obsessed with the Supreme Ring, and when the story went on when he argued with Guru at the doomsday volcano, Frodo would kill Guru to retake the ring. And it’s not just an idea, because Peter Jackson filmed the ending and used it as the preferred ending.
“There was no doubt that it was a murder, but at the time we could accept such a solution because we felt like everyone wanted Frodo to kill Guru,” Jackson said.
However, this finale was abandoned, and the director and his team decided to shoot another version. Which is the scene we saw in “The Lord of the Rings 3: The Return of the King” and grunted Frodo’s finger to recapture Ring. And then himself fell into the doomsday volcano with the Lord of the Rings, Frodo suddenly realized.
The reason for this decision is that the previous ending was really “very not Tolkien.” “This is completely contrary to his expectations of heroes,” Jackson said.
