Fans Outraged at New Character in The Return of the King
By Brian Briggs
Wellington, New Zealand - A recently leaked trailer for The Return of the King has Tolkien fans outraged over
the apparent addition of a new character - Jar-Jaromir.
The scene depicted in the trailer shows Jar-Jaromir shouting, "Gondora gonna fallsa"; he then trips over a
corpse and knocks down a couple of Uruk-hai.
Producers of The Lord of the Rings trilogy
confirmed the addition of the half-brother of Boromir and Faramir.
"While The Two Towers is performing better at the box office than The Fellowship of the Ring, we
are worried about a demographic that is skewing much older than desired. More mature fans are very good
to have, but it's the younger fans who buy the merchandise. That's really what brings in the bucks on a movie like
this," said producer Tim Wilcox.
"People complained a lot about Gimli just being there for comic relief," continued Wilcox. "We answer
that criticism by directing the humor through Jar-Jaromir in The Return of the King. There's this funny scene where
Jar-Jaromir decides it's best to hand the ring over to Sauron, but then he drops it and kicks it into Mount Doom.
Hi-larious."Read the whole story at BBSpot.
Purists, miffed by the deviations in The Two Towers, were so enraged by Jar-Jaromir as to be rendered speechless.
