As part of his "Reuniting Apart" YouTube series, Josh Gad reunited Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson with several members of the film's cast and crew to discuss their memories of making one of the most beloved film trilogies of all time.


The Reunion

Joining Jackson and Gad were Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan. Viggo Mortensen, Orlando Bloom, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Bean, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto and Karl Urban. Composer Howard Shore and co-writer Philippa Boyens also made an appearance. The event supported No Kid Hungry, a charity in support of ending childhood hunger.

Highlights Of The "Lord Of The Rings" Reunion

Gad's 50 minute interview covered a wide range of topics, including adapting J.R.R. Tolkien's famous tale for the big screen.

Another moment from the trilogy was Boromir's famous "One does not simply" speech, where he warns the Council of Elrond that trying to sneak into Mordor to destroy the One Ring is impossible. Jackson admits that the speech was written the day before the council scene was filmed, and Sean Bean's speech was done so well that it became a meme.

Other moments include memories from Andy Serkis playing Gollum and the cast remembering their time with Christopher Lee, who played Saruman in the films and passed away in 2015.

Reunion Brings Huge Support From 'No Kid Hungry' Charity

No Kid Hungry was so pleased by the gesture, they thanked Gad for helping put on this event.
