tchansen writes “According to Ain’t It Cool News, the character of Saruman has been cut from the beginning of ‘Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’. The scouring of the Shire isn’t in this movie at all, so the only place the character was featured was at the beginning. The story, a posting of an email between Harry Knowles and Peter Jackson, is that Peter felt that the seven minutes cut was really just tying up loose ends from the previous movie and messed up the pacing of the third movie. The seven minutes cut will return in the Extended Edition DVD released later next year.” You know, I read this several days ago, and never posted it.
