A few of Lord of the Rings actors got together earlier to fight a Cave Troll. This time, however, it was with cutlery!
Fifteen years ago, Peter Jackson brought the first installment of the big-screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s trilogy. The Fellowship of the Ring paved way for the epitome of brilliance and ingenious movie-making. Also, the success of the trilogy inspired movies of the sequel story too. The latest reunion of some of the original cast members is a subtle reminder of Lord of the Rings‘ glory days.
Lord of the Rings: Cast Reunion
The hobbits and their fellowship mates were in presence at a restaurant. Guessing from the Instagram post, the affinity for each other is robust still. Frodo (Elijah Wood) doesn’t seem to have aged a day, but the same cannot be said about the other four. Pippin (Billy Boyd) and Merry (Dominic Monaghan) were at their usual wit and humor, of course.
Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Legolas (Orlando Bloom), on the other hand, still mean business after many years, looks like. It was indeed Dominic Monaghan who took to Instagram to post a couple of pictures from the mini-reunion. Notable absentees were Sam (Sean Astin) and Gandalf (Ian McKellen).
Dominic’s post shows the five of them recreating a scene from the Fellowship of the Ring. Case in point, Dominic captions the post with ‘They have a Cave Troll’ which explains the disbelief on their faces. Forks replace Legolas’ bow and Aragorn holds a tiny log, however. Frodo is in awe of the monster and the fellow hobbits are no exception, of course.
Lord of the Rings: Legacy
Even after decades, the influence and authenticity of the LOTR movies is pristine, one could argue. Besides, they still feature high among the best movies of all time. Many projects since have derived influence from these movies and saw significant amount of success. It’s no exaggeration to say that these movies had huge impact in crafting these actors’ careers.
On a different note, it’s a pleasure to watch the cast back together. Thanks to Dominic Monaghan, fans could reminisce the good old days. Apart from the group picture, Dominic posts another picture with his ‘captain and king’ – Viggo Mortensen. Additionally, there’s an exclusive photo of all the hobbits in a single frame.
Times, they do change, don’t they? Not the hobbits, they don’t! Duh.
