The Lord of the Rings is a film trilogy directed by Peter Jackson, adapted from the beloved and beloved fantasy adventure book trilogy written by JRR Tolkien. The films were made all at once, over a two-year period. When they were released, the world first saw the films in their theatrical version, but there are extended editions that came out when the films were first released on DVD.
In the elongated cut of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, there is a character called the Mouth of Sauron who appears in a cut scene from the theatrical version. This character is blind and wears armor to cover his severely disfigured face. He also has a very large mouth with disgusting yellow teeth and death-black gums. In the scene, viewers will be able to hear Sauron quietly whispering instructions to Sauron’s mouth, which explains how the character is able to move around, even without his sight.
Sauron whispers to the Mouth and tells him to show Gandalf, as well as the other members of the Fellowship, Frodo’s Mithril. He also says that Frodo suffered a lot. If viewers look at the creature’s mouth, they will notice that when she begins to speak the words Sauron tells her to say, black slime begins to flow from her gums. This scene played out a little differently than in the books. In the scene, Aragorn drew his sword and beheaded the creature when she started mocking him. In the book, Aragorn looked at the creature and made it curl up in fear. The movie didn’t take advantage of this really awesome character either, as the scene was so short – only a minute or two.
So if fans are looking for a little more explanation, then they’ve come to the right place. This character was not like a Ringwraith – who were once men, but became ghostly spirits and servants of Sauron who were neither alive nor dead. The Mouth of Sauron was a Living Man, although his name is “remembered in the history of the no, for he himself had forgotten it”. During the War of the Ring, the Mouth of Sauron (who was one of Sauron’s most devoted servants) served as Lieutenant of the Tower of Barad-DUR. He was also the Messenger of Sauron, sometimes referred to as the Messenger of Mordor.
The Mouth of Sauron was one of the black Númenóreans. In this context, the color does not refer to a skin color, but rather to a group of Men who were fallen Númenóreans who opposed the Valar and were corrupted by Sauron. The Mouth of Sauron is said to have been thousands of years old during the time of the War of the Ring, as the character entered Sauron’s service when the Dark Tower first rose. The character has learned witchcraft, and it is implied that this is the reason for his long life.
Although Aragorn kills him in the movies, in the Return of the king novel, it is assumed that he died sometime before the Battle of the Black Gate, or that he became a leader in the retreat of Sauron’s servants after the fall of the Dark Tower. The Mouth of Sauron was one of the few evil minions to speak directly to Sauron. When Sauron’s Mouth confronted Aragorn and the Fellowship just before the Battle of Morranon, he taunted them saying that no man from the west could deal with him, having rejected Aragorn as king.
After rejecting Aragorn’s claim as king, Mouth curled up in fear under Aragorn’s gaze and begged not to be attacked, as he was only an ambassador. When Gandalf assured him he would be safe, Mouth took him for the leader. The Messenger of Mordor was sent to persuade the West to give up the war, and he said that if Gandalf and the others did not surrender, Sam and Frodo would be tortured for many years. In return for the release of Frodo and Sam, the Mouth of Sauron gave a long list of demands and conditions for their surrender, such as withdrawal from Gondor anywhere beyond the Anduin River, and they were not to more “never again attack Sauron the Great in arms, open or secret.” The east of the Anduin River was to belong to Sauron as well, and any inhabitant of the land between the Rohan Trench and the west was to be disarmed and praised Mordor.
Gandalf rightfully rejected the terms, saying it was too big a ransom and doubted Sauron would keep his word. Gandalf dismissed the Mouth of Sauron because they had not come to negotiate with a servant of the Dark Lord. The Mouth of Sauron then sent the forces of Mordor to begin the battle seen in The Lord of the Rings: Return of the king.
