Aragorn vs Sauron unreleased scene (better quality) - edited

And no, I hadn't seen the Aragorn v Sauron live-action footage before - cool!
That's really well spliced together.
I'm glad that Sauron was switched out for a troll in the final film, though. Having Aragorn v Sauron mirror the Elendil v Sauron battle in the prologue would have been too trite, IMO.

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."
"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
