So I learn that Peter Jackson decided to bring Maeglin back in the LOTR films as a sort of looming presence for all the concocted romance he crafted.
Shockingly I had missed Maeglin’s appearances in my previous innumerable viewings of the films. You probably did too.
The way I look at it, if you’re going to cut out Bombadil and Glorfindel and give us six hours of Liv Tyler pouting intermittently why not bring Maeglin back from the Halls of Mandos?
So I go in for another look and sure enough. Look closely at the screen-caps above and prepare to have your mind blown.This could only mean that in Jackson’s take on Tolkien’s world Maeglin is somehow related to both Arwen AND Eowyn.
Oh yeah, he also made a cameo in “Ghost”.
