    Well, tom bobadil was old and he didnt care about the ring. Maybe not all creatures are interested in the ring. Of course lord of the rings wouldnt be 3 enjoyable books if the eagles helped and tolkien knew that.

    Sure, sneaking in would have been damn near impossible.
    But does it matter, when you literally go in and can drop the ring within the minute you're spotted?

    What a bunch of crap. So Tolkien introduced an element to his story (giant eagles) that he himself recognized had to have an artificial restriction that they could only be used sparingly for plot holes. The eagles don't get evil and powerful by carrying the ring, they stay nice and happy by carrying the hobbit who carries the ring. Duh. Element of surprise...why? The ring would be done for in seconds and so what if the ring wraiths and nazgul scramble like fighter jets to intercept them....the eagles killed a dragon big enough to flatten three mountains. Pretty sure they could kill some nazgul.

    If you had bothered to read the books, not only would you have actually enjoyed the story, (instead of the incongruous nonsense served up by Jackson and his pretty boy hobbits), you would realise that NO-ONE can be permitted to know about the ring.
    Not even eagles.

    I’ve always thought this was such a stupid question. “Why don’t they just fly to Mordor?”
    Uh, because there’s a giant fucking eye right in the middle of it? An eye that would see it coming from miles and miles away? And then they would be intercepted and beaten down by wraiths and shit?
    And this is all assuming the eagles aren’t corrupted by the ring on the way. Even just one Boromir-eagle would leave the entire trip totally fucked.

    The real reason the Great Eagles didn't fly agents of the White Council to Mordor is because the Great Eagles are NOT their tools. The Great Eagles are the chief servants of Manwe, King of the Valar (gods), in Middle-earth, and are an expression of his will in the mortal world. In other words, whenever you see a Great Eagle do anything in Tolkien's stories it is essentially divine intervention. So the question should be: why didn't the Valar want to directly aid of the Free Peoples in their fight against Sauron? Because the Valar are in self-imposed exile ever since the cataclysm that saw the end of the Second Age and the Downfall of Numenor.
    The Valar used to act directly in the world long ago, and many times their actions with the Children of Iluvatar ended badly, like trying to thread a needle with a hammer. Many reasons why...but the biggest cause is because Elves and Men are the Children of Iluvatar (God), they were created by Iluvatar just as the Valar/Maiar were, and thus not part of the Great Music of the Ainur (Valar/Maiar) which birthed the Universe, thus outside the Valar's complete comprehension...and when gods make mistakes or make war (even benevolent gods) whole continents can blow up (see Almaren, Beleriand, and Numenor).
    The Downfall of Numenor was the last straw, seeing not only the end of that Atlantean-esque civilization, but the physical removal of Valinor itself from the Earth. Paradise can now only be reached by the Elves from the Grey Havens by taking the Straight Road into the True West. The Valar also swore off directly intervening in the affairs of mortal races again, folks would just have to save themselves...though they did watch from a distance.
    However, with the return of Sauron and him taking up the mantle of his old boss (Melkor/Morgoth) as Evil Incarnate, the Valar couldn't do nothing, even with the ban. So they decided to act indirectly. They sent five Maiar (angels) in mortal disguise (Wizards/Istari) to help organize the Free Peoples. They sent dreams and visions. And once in a great while, basically breaking their own ban, would order the Eagles to act in favor of the Free Peoples at critical times.

    • Lord Telperion
      Lord Telperion 3 days ago

      PS> This is why when the Eagles DO appear it is so emotionally powerful, because it shows the Valar have not abandoned the world after all, that they still love the world and are zoomed in like a laser on what is happening. That they are willing to break their ban on divine intervention to tip the balance in favor of the light. Eucatastrophe.

    Now someone please explain why the Nazgul didn't just fly to the Shire... "But Sauron, if we had flown, we would have no air defences against the eagles, we needed our winged thingies to be patrolling the sky."
    "Oh, so you are saying that me, a giant fricking eye, wouldn't see them coming, and it's not like I have a whole army camped on the mountain with spears and bows that might have be able to do something about them or anything, no? But if you had flown, you wouldn't have got there half a day too late, when they were already on the road. Instead you would have caught Frodo still fannying around, spending weeks trying to sell his house, in a futile attempt to confuse you about where he lives for all of ten minutes." Yes, that happened in the books.

    ClimbScience 3 days ago

    I think what people tend to forget is that the mightiest of the ring wraiths has already been destroyed in the film when wraiths and eagles fight. Maybe he would have been powerful enough to be a real threat to the eagles. It could even be that the power of the 8 remaining ones was diminished by the death of their leader. On top of that, it has already been said that as soon as the eagles would land at mount doom, they would have probably met armies of trolls and orcs. I'm not sure if the combined power of mordor would really have been too weak to defeat the eagles before they would enter mount doom.

  • first last

    I don't know about the eagles getting tempted to wear the ring somehow. I don't believe that explanation. I already believed your last explanation before seeing the video. It's because they needed stealth and eagles aren't stealthy when the bad guys got so many flying troops. I think the books made that quite clear although its been a long time since I read them.

  • LostOnceLefthanded

    Easiest way to hide the whole fellowship from Sauron is to make everyone bring their index finger and thumb together to form a shape of a ring and hold that for the rest of the journey and if Sauron ever looks at them then you got him, War's over.

  • Whale Sharko
    Whale Sharko 4 days ago

    Because the eagles (in the books) are really savage and (before he becomes the white) calls Gandalf a burden
    Also in the Hobbit they were reluctant to even take Thorin and co just past the forest riddled with goblins even though Gandalf had just KILLED THEIR KING!
    So why don't would these angry lil birdy Bois want to carry Bilbo's adoptive son, Gloin's actual son and much heavier humans PLUS 3 other hobbits
    (They'd probably be ok with an elf and a wizard)
    All the way to a murderous land with a possessive demon ring that they would totally want to steal and rule the earth with?
    They just wouldn't
    They're too cool

  • nrthstr11

    The simplest answer to this though is still that with Sauron's power still over his land the eagles could not have made it to the volcano without being attacked by the Nazgul and other creatures that Sauron had not to mention his own magics. The eagles would have been spotted from far off and Sauron would have sent monsters to stop them. It is only with the distraction of the battle before the gates that the eagles come. Then only after the ring is destroyed do the Nazgul fall, Sauron's power is dispersed and the eagles are able to make it through.

    OMG this video is hilarious! As the official DUMBEST THEORY EVER! They couldn't use the Eagles because you can't trust Eagles with the Ring. Period. Virtually everybody who comes in contact with the Ring but the Hobbits is tempted to seize it for themselves. Even Sam is tempted and only refuses to seize the ring for himself because Hobbits lacks ambition. He just wants to return to his garden. The Ring contains the "will" ie the mind of Sauron. It's not going to just let the Eagles fly it to Mordor and destroy it. The Ring would tempt the Lord of the Eagles to drop Frodo from 1 mile up and seize the ring from his pulped remains. You don't have to actually wear it to be seduced by its power as Gollum and Boromir proved. Gandalf couldn't trust anybody, not even himself with the Ring, not even to hold onto it so they certainly couldn't trust a giant Eagle not to be "seduced by the power of the ring." If that happened you'd have an invisible Eagle with the Ring flying around the tallest mountains in Middle Earth and you'd never get it back. Truly dumb theory!

  • Ruhollah Nakhaee
    Ruhollah Nakhaee 4 days ago

    The Valar aren't Gods! Almost a quarter of Silmarillion is about how there'd ONE GOD and the Valar are his creations. The whole story of creation of Dwarfs is based upon Aule doing it without the permission of Eru Ilúvatar and that goes into the reason why they aren't as powerful as anything that old. The whole point you made was right but I can't believe someone went through everything Tolkien and came back calling Valar and Mayar god's and demigods! The story literally begins with God, Eru, being alone!
    I don't care if this is old and no one will see this comment. This was literal blasphemy!

  • Jonathan Cummings
    Jonathan Cummings 4 days ago

    It's simple, the reason the Eagles didn't fly Frodo into Mordor is that wasn't what was put into the history of the world by the song of the Ainur which created Arda's history. Remember, only MEN have the power to operate outside the song, the great power Eru granted to them. It's why Manwe didn't simply arrive at the end of the third age and grab Sauron and take the ring and lock them both in Mandos, because he wasn't supposed to according to the song of the Ainur. The truth is that the history of Arda was largely preplanned. Melkor was supposed to turn evil, Sauron and other of the Maiar were going to join his side, and Sauron was supposed to fall just in the way he did. The change in the world from one dominated by Elves, Maiar, Dwarves, and other powerful creatures like Dragons and these Super Eagles, to one dominated by men after the end of the third age was preordained! Eru Iluvatar wanted things to happen just the way they did. Therefore, it was meant for one of the most powerful beings still operating in Middle Earth at the time, Sauron, to be taken down by mere Hobbits, remember Gollum was a badly mutated Hobbit from an earlier time of Middle Earth history. Gollum, Bilbo, Frodo, and Sam Gamgee are primarily the beings that ensured the ring both remained outside of Sauron's possession, and instead ended up being unmade in the fire of Mount Doom.

    I'm pretty sure it was because the ring wraiths had flying mounts and to fly in the open would expose the ring bearer. Calling upon the eagles also is not something Gandalf could call on lightly due to not wanting to offend the king of the eagles, even though Gandalf had previously saved his life once.

    You didn't go over the lore very well. Mt. Doom is consistly referred to as a mountain, not a volcano. There were references to the flames licking the ceilings. Flying would have given Sauron ample time to counter and they would not have been able to fly over and drop it in.
    To quote the History of Middle Earth:
    I can think of only one way: one would have to find the Cracks of Doom in the depths of Orodruin, the Fire-Mountain, and case the Ring in there, if he really wished to destroy it, or put it beyond all reach until the End.

    Interesting theory, but I'm going to poke holes in YOUR theory that poked holes in the ORIGINAL theory. Both are wrong, which doesn't mean that the original theory is right, but that Gandalf was saying something simple, like "Run away you morons!" instead.
    In the Middle Earth, there are beings that have souls, and beings that did not. The eagles are not beings created with souls, but animals awakened to consciousness by the demi-gods. Contrast this with Ents, which are souls that existed before the trees, and either populated them, or grew to look like them over time. This means that if you put the ring in the hands of an Eagle, it would view it as merely a pebble, much like putting the ring in the hands of a deer would.
    Gandalf basically could call on the eagles because he did them the world's biggest favor. They practically owed him for all time for what he did them. It's intentionally left vague what he did, only that he did something so awesome that they can never say no. This is important because it means that basically they only owe Gandalf a favor. No gandalf = no ride to mordor. And Gandalf is wise enough to know this.
    P.S. The one ring gave the bearer its most desired power. I.E. Put the ring in the hands of a hobbit, which just wants to be left alone (even from other hobbits), and that hobbit gains the power to go invisible. The ring in the hands of a king of Arnor (Eriador + Gondor), and he gains power and leadership over men. We can't even imagine what the ring would do in the hands of an Elf Lord (like galadriel) who already had another ring of power, or a Wizard (like Saruman), or BOTH! (like Gandalf who was gifted a ring of power and was a wizard!)

    Another important point is that the eagles serve Manwe, and the Valar are not supposed to directly interfere in the affairs of Middle Earth. True, they sent Gandalf and the other Istari to guide the free peoples of Middle Earth, but perhaps allowing the eagles to literally carry the ring over to Mordor would have been a step too far. They might have been forbidden to give aid, and Gandalf would have known this, so he wouldn't have even bothered suggesting it.

    I would be curious to know when Sauron learned his ring had been found. In the Hobbit, Gandalf is hardly suspicious of it being evil or even very powerful, albeit using an artifact foolishly is unacceptable. I wonder if it isn't the fact that Sauron is actively looking for it knowing it had been found and the ring itself wanting the be found that makes the whole plan a wreck-to-be. The eagles could now be tempted, Gandalf himself wouldn't be tested and Galadriel was and chose to diminish and go west. None of it is spoken of in the Hobbit. Then again, all these theories fade when compared to the reason that eagles weren't used, IMHO ; it makes for a cheap and stupid story! The same could be said of the Istari magic, which was used sparingly, even by Saruman who is after power above all. Magic is miracles, and if you slightly abuse it, then you start wondering why Gandalf simply just don't spew lightning (as he is sent by Manwe of the sky and mountains) and you get in a mess where you have to create counter measures for this magic in a narrative perspective, kind of like in Harry Potter, where you can find many loopholes. Plus you have to explain them so you don't let your readers baffled in questions....

    Iirc Tolkien was rather explicit that the giant eagles were a special bunch that would not normally meddle in worldly affairs and could and would not be commanded (same as with Tom Bombadil). Plus we get told on several occasions that they have a limited range if carrying passengers (and we might conclude that they would be unable to fight when thus burdened). They tip the scale just once (at the battle of the five armies) and are otherwise unaccountable. In The Hobbit it is even explictly stated that the rescue of the dwarves was just a personal favor for Gandalf because he once cured the eagle chief from an injury.
    Tolkien was well aware of the 'problem' (and complained when a movie proposal for the Hobbit tried eagles as the main transport). Iirc he even stated that divine intervention was necessary to get the eagles to act for the common good at all in LotR.

    You missed one thing the eagels don`t have to carry the ring they only have to carry frodo and as sam said maybe i can`t carry the ring but i can carry you. Oh and i don`t really remember the Eye in the Books to be something that actually exsisted in it so no there is no giant eye that can spot the eagels and even if they have nothing to fight them in the air. The nazguhl and their fellbeasts can`t handel the eagels one on one and there are much more eagels than nazguhl. And i also don`t remember there to be any anti flyer weapons to be in the description of mordors defenses.
