Scene 4:  The Fall of Sauron (Script - use right mouse button for a separate window)

Isildur, looking up at Sauron

Elendil lies dead
Isildur sees Elendil die

Isildur sees Elendil die

Sauron looking down on them

Isildur faces Sauron...

Sauron towering over Isildur

Narsil after Elendil's fall

Sauron reaching for Narsil

Sauron's fingers go flying...
It was in this moment, when all hope had faded,
that Isildur, son of the King, took up his father's sword.


Sauron's Helmet - Empty!

Sauron's armies fall

Elves, just after Sauron's fall
Sauron, the enemy of the free peoples of Middle-earth,
was defeated.

Isildur reaches for the Ring...

...and picks it up, on Sauron's finger...

...and holds it in his hand.
The ring passed to Isildur,
who had this one chance to destroy evil forever.
Sauron's defeated army after 'The Last Alliance'
After the battle... 

Curse from Mordor
But the hearts of men are easily corrupted,
And the ring of power has a will of its own.
Isildur and his troop riding through the woods


It betrayed Isildur to his death.


And some things,
that should not
have been forgotten,
were lost...

History became legend,
legend became myth,
and for two-and-a-half

Smeagol and Deagol,
fishing on the river Anduin
Smeagol, who became the creature Gollum

And there, it consumed him.

The ring brought to Gollum unnatural long life.
For five hundred years, it poisoned his mind.
And in the gloom of Gollum's cave, it waited.


My precious.  It came to me,

And the Ring of power perceived:  its time had now come.
The Ring perceived, it's time had come...
It abandoned Gollum.

But something happened then, the ring did not intend.

It was picked up by the most unlikely creature imaginable:

What's this?   A Ring?
A hobbit, Bilbo Baggins of the Shire.

Bilbo hears Gollum's cries...
For the time would soon come when hobbits will shape the fortunes of all...
