When it comes to The Lord of the Rings, one of the most common questions circulated online is why didn’t Frodo just ride the giant Eagles to Mount Doom? There are theories out there that suggest this was the plan all along, but sadly, when you look at the evidence, that's just wrong. In fact, it's so wrong, it's dangerous! In this episode, I will give you the definitive answer to why Frodo didn’t simply ride those giant birds into Mordor!

Very good theory. Though in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, around the end of the movie, Bilbo gets carried by an eagle while he has the ring in his pocket.

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.
Telendil Kun oldin
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.

At 9:50 you say he never touches it. He touches it in the fire-writing scene. Bare fingers and all. I was shocked when I came across that part. And it's not like he doesn't know which ring it is at that point. I guess he was confident enough at that point that he was not taking possession of it merely by touching it, and only later learned to be even more cautious.

The eagles were the servants of Manwe, the leader of the Valar. Manwe was also partner of Elbereth, essentially thd husband and wife duo who represented the sky. Sauron probably hated and feared these two more than any other beings on Earth. So, naturally he couldn't fail to notice a cadre of Eagles flying into Mordor. Once noticed, every ounce of his power would be directed at them, and if they had the Ring, or the hobbits with them, end of story. Sauron would very likely stopped them before they got near Mount Doom, which lay between Minas Morgul to the Southwest and Baradur to the Northeast, right in the middle of Mordor's most densely populated region. Stealth on the ground was far better a plan than drawing the attention of every evil beast in a 100 mile radius by flying in.

I think, the problem with the eagles in the films is that they don't speak. For any movie viewer, eagles are creatures invoked by gandalf through a moth. if you read the books, you learn that eagles aren't just some creatures at Gandalf's disposal, they are sentient beings with their own motivatins and fears, they would avoid going to war as long as they can remain neutral, they wouldn't go to war just to help humankind because humans are dicks to the eagles. And yes, they can be killed by arrows. They help Gandalf because he saved the eagle lord once. It's weird to me that movie Gandalf speak to a moth, but never say a single word to the eagles, not even "thank you", what a jerk!

Winston Smith - Ministry of Truth
I dont think the eagles were demi-gods. Definitely powerful, just like Shelob but even she wasnt a demi-god....she could be killed. Even Balrogs which were Fire Demons could be destroyed - whether or not they are simply banished is not clear but it seems if they are killed they are permanently destroyed; like dragons, none of whom returned after their deaths. The Balrog in Moria was after the ring for itself so your theory about the ring corrupting and being desired by the eagles is possible. I dont understand why Sauron would make himself vulnerable by instilling his life force in a ring which can be destroyed allowing him not to return, as Gandalf was able to do, unless, with the Destruction of Melkor he could no longer be brought back if he was destroyed.

If I remember correctly, there was a scene in The Hobbit where Gandalf, Bilbo, and the dwarfs are rescued by the Eagles. At this point Frodo has the ring but the Eagles do nothing about it. It might be because they don't sense it or know it's there or they just don't care. It would probably have been safe to fly over Mount Doom if the Eagles weren't told the true purpose. Being ancient creatures they of course probably aren't stupid so... Who knows, maybe they would see right through the trick. Or maybe they just have no interest in power at all. But hey, it's not like we have Tolkien to answer these kinds of things.

You get a thumbs down because your opening "jokes" were not funny. Also, that is a QUESTION, not a theory. You see, a theory is based on facts. A theory is testable. None of this fits the definition of theory. At best, it is conjecture. Finally, Lord of the Rings doesn't take place in the winter. It actually begins in the summer and the adventure takes the better part of a year to finish. As you are obviously not familiar with either the books or the movies, there is no point in continuing to watch you make a fool of yourself.

I don't believe for one second that you read any of those books since you didn't know about Tom Bombadil, you know, the one so powerful that the One Ring had no effect on him, none what-so-ever. You know, the one character that was left out of the films. No wonder you didn't know about him since you are a film theorist. So ultimately your so-called "debunking" has more holes than that far flung theory - an actual book theory.

My theori is: It would be an incredibly boring story. Gandalf: OMG you have the ring, we must destroy it. Frodo: But how? Gandalf: (Summons the eagels) get on. Rest of the book/movie: Cruising on the eagles, plop (drops the ring in the lava) The end.

i think part of what makes people so adamant about the eagles is that sauron's power always seems to methodical and slow, he doesn't actually have a laser power that could just shoot down the eagles that we're ever made aware of... but it's interesting to think that if the eagles had the ring sauron's powers would increase also... that's probably the most incredible part of tolkien's storytelling to undergo all of this rule-setting without going into epic rants about the tedium of why this and why not that... i can't believe you read all that source material, i've only made it up to the hobbit, fellowship, and the first couple chapters of two towers

But in the Hobbit Bilbo gets the ring in chapter 5 and the Lord of the Eagles saves them in chapter 6. Plus Gandalf might not have wanted to possess the ring, but he had no troubles travelling with it. Same with Galadriel, she had no problem being near the ring or touching the ring bearer, but did not want to possess the ring. Your theory sounds good, but if Gandalf and Galadriel could be near the ring bearer for extended periods without any trouble then the great eagles could have carried them to Mount Doom.

The reason he might not have said "fly using eagles" instead of "fly you fools" is because spies of Saruman or other creatures may have heard and therefore reported back, making it impossible.

Not to nitpick, but I suppose I'm going to anyway … If you pored through The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, letters, etc. then you should know that Tolkien's Christian beliefs were reflected in there actually being only one true god, Iluvatar or Eru. The Valar & Maiar were his world's equivalent of archangels & angels respectively. That's right … The wizards & Sauron were Maiar & thus angels. Also, if memory serves correctly, Tolkien said that all the races, including the Eagles, were engaged in their own battles against Sauron's forces, further preventing them from assisting much. Otherwise, I agree 100% with this theory.
magicscot 8 soat oldin
Pablo, keep in mind that Tolkien was specifically Catholic. The Catholics pray to and venerate (some would say “worship,” even) saints and angels, but clearly don’t view them as gods. Some Catholic traditions even hold that the archangels, represented in Tolkien as the Valar, had a hand in Creation, carrying out God’s commands, just like Eru (AKA Iluvatar) commanded the Valar. Tolkien made it clear in letters and other writing that he viewed Eru as the only true god, as reflected by the elves also calling him “Eru the One.”
Harvey Gardner
Harvey Gardner 11 soat oldin
I thought that Illuvatar was like the top God and the valar were like minor gods and the maiar were demigods. If the valar made the eagles then they would be at or maybe above maiar like sauron and gandalf. But if your saying that, then giving the ring to them would be potentially worse than giving it to Sauron. 1. Illuvatar - Elves. -Men 2.Maiar (Varda etc.. (Melkor used to be at this level)) -Eagles -Ents -(Dwarves should be lower I think) 3. Maiar (Sauron, gandalf)

+Pablo Espinosa all the Ainur, Valar included were spirits created by Illuvitar. The 3 mentioned were only 3 of 15 that entered the world after the singing. They went to finish the work of Illuvitar. They were doing what he had already set into motion and showed them. They used the power he gave them to do his work. At all points they were subservient beings. The only exception was Melkor who rebelled and was actually stronger and closer to the creation of the world than any of the others. If they're gods then Melkor is also a god.

I thought that Gandalf mentions in fotr (book) that the eagles won't help because it's not their business. The only reason they help at all is cause they owe Gandalf and he's friends with the leader. They wouldn't get so directly involved. Also they even talk about using eagles at the council of elrond (book) and Gandalf tells them it won't work.

I don't get it. Why does the hobbit trilogy suck? Is it just cool to hate prequels now inconsistently?

No. It's because a relatively simple story was expanded out (most say needlessly) into a massive trilogy by including appendix information, creating situations and plotlines from sheer dramatic license (Legolas and Tauriel), and significantly altered the canonical work for the sake of a forced plotline (Azog had been dead for more than 150 years). Many perceive these deviations were not so much to make the movie flow better than the book on the big screen, but to increase audience appeal and profit.

The eagle thing isn't even a plot hole. Sauron was obviously keeping tabs on big players like the eagles. They would easily get spotted and get shut down, giving Sauron the ring. This is kinda the point of getting Frodo to carry the ring to Mordor. The hobbits were always overlooked, ignored and never looked at as a serious threat by Sauron, making them ideal to sneakily carry the ring to Mordor.
Yllegjord F

All this talk of power is exactly the point that Tolkien is trying to make, or, in his own words, the story he is trying to tell: power comes with arrogance and this is its downfall, because individuals that are considered small and insignificant can change the history of the whole world. This battle is not to be won by clashing strengths (they tried this and failed, remember) but with the smallest of the small embarking on their own hero's journey. The difference between the good side and the bad side is not who is the most powerful, but being able to see those small ones and not just randomly crush them for their own purposes. Also, cathartic doesn't mean what you think it means.

here one for bilbo, it is why hes eye turn that way and his teeth go messed up and all evil like when he is tempted by the ring again. it is because he is so old, as said on here your power is directly linked to how old you are and while bilbo had the ring he lived for over 100 years increasing his power as a hobbit there for when he transforms as such when tempted by the ring it is because he has gotten more powerful with age there for it lets him wield more of its power.

And while you are talking about if the eagles got the ring, the ones above them in the hierarchy, like the actual Maiar would make more powerful lords. Besides, the purpose of the One Ring is to assume dominion over the other rings. Basically mind controlling the other ringbearers.

But this f****** Eagle One, I remember having this conversation with friends of mine like when the original trilogy came out and saying some of the same s***... But I never actually read any of the f****** books because I was young and have video games played Sports and I didn't want to read books till I grew the f****** and started getting into fantasy and Dungeons & Dragons s*** Game of ice and fire songs, but yeah the Eagles were like a ex machina f****** Godmachine dot-dot-dot too powerful, and I did read some of his like little lore books like you were talking about where he does say that they're kind of like half angel type creatures you know same reason why the wizard didn't just carry the ring. I just think it's funny that if me at like a little kid age could one shot the movie and immediately recognized that concept without ever reading the books and then continue to argue it 4 years after the movies was pretty incredible just as a living self-aware Bean oh, it's kind of wild to think that little kid me already understood and accepted theological Concepts from abstract realities let alone the actual one we live in dot-dot-dot but mad respect keep doing your thing Matt!!

Tolkien's fantasy world does have one God: Eru Ilúvatar. Valar were kinda like his 'children' - we could call them high angels - who did have their part in creating the world (Arda). But they could only create within the framework set by Eru.

Sauron always watching all of Middle Earth and searching for the ring. Battle of Minas Tirith happens because Pippin touches Palanthir and Sauron thinks he got the ring and he wanted to capture him. Sauron knows that one hobbit got the ring but he don't know which one. Also Mordor always swarms with orcs and Fellbeasts. It's not very smart to hop on a eagle and fly towards Sauron screaming "Hey Sauron we have your ring and we are coming to destroy you." He doesn't know anything about the destruction of ring because he thinks people of Middle-Earth would never do such thing. Even Frodo changed his mind at the last point but his fight with Gollum caused to ring to fall into lava.
MrPicklerwoof 6 kun oldin
It's perfectly simple: The ring cannot be knowingly destroyed. By anyone (with perhaps the exception of Bombadil, but even that's debatable). Gwahir would have not flown to Mt Doom and dunked the ring. It would have corrupted his mind long before that point. If Gwahir had carried a ringbearer, he would have turned against that ringbearer long before that point also. It's sort of the whole point of the books really. It's the same reason Gandalf can't carry it. It was ultimately destroyed by accident and that was always going to be the only way.

In The Hobbit, the eagles say they don't fly over the lands of men incase they get shot down. Why would they fly over hundreds of miles of men and then over an orc army in full view of everyone. They picked Frodo and Sam up because the orc army had been dispersed and their risk was pretty much gone.
