Rings of Power... Can't Post

Search as I can, I have not found an answer to a question I have. Did Peter Jackson ever use the entire 'ring poem' any where in the movies?
"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne,
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie,
One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."

I know he used lines 6 and 7 inscribed on the one ring, but what about the rest of the poem?Unsure

I haven't checked to make sure, [In reply to] Can't Post

but I think most of it is narrated in the prologue of FotR. I believe the line "In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie" is missing.


They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep.

Yes... [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember some individual lines being spoken, but the entire poem was broken into pieces. I have loved that poem since I first read the books. I think Peter Jackson missed out on a good vehicle to include as a showcase!Unsure Oh well!

Originally yes [In reply to] Can't Post

In the Council Of Elrond scene Elrond was supposed to quote the entire Ring Verse parts of it can be seen in the EE Appendices, the council of Elrond scene should have been much longer with Gandalf explaining how Sauron made and is connected to the Ring "He mingled the gold with his own life force" if I remember correctly

I thought so too [In reply to] Can't Post

I could have sworn they used the ring poem in narration during the prologue, but reading through an online script (http://www.imsdb.com/...f-the-Ring,-The.html) it looks like they changed the wording significantly. Unless the script is mistaken or it was included somewhere in the EE.

Elrond saying, "In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie," but I couldn't place it.
I agree with you - it is definitely in the appendices.

Yeah, you can see some of that in the EE version of the movie where Gandalf starts using Black Speech. It's pretty cool and it would've been neat to see more of that in the theatre version. I haven't watched the appendices for the films yet so maybe I should do that.

@OP I think Galadriel gives a slightly altered version of the poem in the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring as others have pointed out. I don't remember ever hearing "In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie" ever spoken in any of the films. It's too bad because the poem is really good.
