🍁🍁 According to a behind scenes footage, during the filming of his character Saruman's death scene for the The Return of the King, (later put in the Extended Edition) Peter Jackson began to coach him how he (Jackson) wanted Lee to react when Saruman was stabbed in the back by Grima (Brad Dourif). However, Lee interrupted him, reminding him that Lee actually had previously heard the sound a man makes when he is stabbed in the back. Jackson referred "He proceeded to talk about a very clandestine part of World War II. He seemed to have expert knowledge on exactly the kind of noise they make." 🍁🍁
O Heptagrama: A Estrela Élfica. ✨
Um dos meus símbolos mágicos favoritos, o Heptagrama, também chamado de Estrela Élfica ou Vespertina ( Simbolizando brilho de Vênus ), consiste em uma estrela de sete pontas, onde cada ponta simboliza algo diferente, possuindo inúmeras interpretações. Junto do Pentagrama, da Estrela de Davi e da Estrela de Ishtar, a Estrela Élfica é uma das representações de estrelas mais comuns na magia, principalmente por sua conexão com o número sete.
Tornou-se ainda mais conhecida por causa da série Game of Thrones, onde aparece como o símbolo sagrado da Fé dos Sete, a principal religião no continente de Westeros, representando as sete faces divinas: O Pai, A Mãe, A Donzela, A Anciã, O Guerreiro, O Ferreiro e O Estranho.
Seus simbolismos mais comuns estão a relação do Heptagrama com os sete dias da semana e seus respectivos regentes: o Sol, a Lua, Marte, Mercúrio, Júpiter, Vênus e Saturno, simbolizando o céu noturno, o todo e a perfeita harmonia.
Há também a simbologia como a Estrela Élfica, símbolos dos elfos que além de representar as sete cores do arco-íris e as sete notas musicais, representa também o Sol, a Lua, as florestas, as águas, o vento, a magia e a conexão do todo.
No geral, essa estrela simboliza a harmonia, o equilíbrio dos sete chakras, proteção, orientação, os sete raios cósmicos universais, a magia, a natureza e o poder das estrelas. 🌿

🍃🍃 Did you know? When looking for inspiration for the city of Minas Tirith in the movies, Peter Jackson and his crew at WETA used Mont Saint-Michel in France. Instead Tolkien's annotations refers Ravenna as inspiration behind the Gondor's capital. What do you think? 😄 🍃🍃
🍃🍃 “So it is true. In a dream, I saw the Eastern sky grow dark. But in the West, a pale light lingered. A voice was crying, ‘The doom is near at hand, Isildur’s Bane is found.‘”
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Some may not know this speech from Boromir, as this was what was seen in the extended edition of the Fellowship of the Ring. This was his first impression of the Ring, which reminded him of a dream that he and his brother shared before travelling to Rivendell, on the eve of the battle to save Osgiliath.
The voice in the dream gave him much more to go on than the fact that the Ring had been found – telling him to find the sword that was broken that dwells in Imaldris (Rivendell), and that there a Halfling will stand. 🍃🍃
