BBSpot: Peter Jackson has announced the addition of a new character in "Return of the
King," - Jar-Jaromir.
Fans of Peter Jackson's first two installments of "Lord of the Rings" are
outraged by the reported addition of a new character to the last film, "The
Return of the King." Jar-Jaromir has been digitally added to attract a younger
audience who will purchase more merchandise, but fans appear to be very unhappy
by the addition.
Producer Tim Wilcox is elated by the new character. "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.
