the lord of the rings reunion

In a time when the casts of cult TV shows and beloved movies are getting together virtually left and right, there is still only one Zoom reunion to rule them all and in the darkness bind them — or at least, provide us a small reprieve as the real world gets more distressing by the minute. Josh Gad has been uniting casts of Back to the FutureSplash, and The Goonies, with his Reunited Apart web series, but his latest one is the most epic reunion yet.

The cast of The Lord of the Rings got the Fellowship back together over Zoom to swap filming stories and show off the matching tattoos they got together. Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Ian McKellen, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, and Orlando Bloom all appeared and were soon joined by “many surprise” guests in the biggest Zoom reunion that Gad has held thus far.

The first time we meet Viggo Mortensen‘s Aragorn in Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings, coolly smoking a pipe with his rugged face hidden by black hood, he’s having one of the best cinematic introductions ever. And through the rest of his run in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, he only gets better, as Mortensen infuses the kingly character with such swagger and world-weary gravitas that it’s hard to imagine anyone else stepping into his muddy boots.

But as daunting as it is, some young whippersnapper has to do the job in Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings TV series, which plans to introduce a younger Aragorn in the adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s lauded novels. Thankfully, for whoever that young actor is, Mortensen has some words of advice.
