Lord of the Rings Reunion is Successful

Nobody would’ve anticipated that the novel coronavirus would bring old castmates from Lord of the Rings back together. This follows after the group of notable actors hadn’t been seen for 10+ years, bringing fans of the original trilogy plenty of excitement for an hour. This reunion was held in honour of charity towards starving children worldwide, with it being hosted by notable comedian Josh Gad. Named “Reunited Apart”, this YouTube Series is sponsored through Zoom and sees famous film casts return to discuss their former time together. When Josh Gad revealed that the Lord of the Rings Cast would be the 3rd group appearing on Reunited Apart, the internet immediately lost their minds.

That moment has now come & gone for fans of Lord of the Rings. Aspects of the film that ascended into the modern pop culture were conversed about, including the iconic meme of Sean Bean’s Boromir. Peter Jackson noted that Sean Bean himself had created this line while improvising, with nobody expecting it’d become so popular more than 10+ years later. This was just one of many subjects that these individuals discussed.

Dedicated supporters behind this franchise couldn’t help but revel in how Sean Bean improvised this line. Peter Jackson noted that the Council of Elrond scene was written less than 24 hours prior, with Sean Bean receiving its script less than an hour before filming. It meant that his lines were taped to his knee, which becomes evident when reviewing the scene, a 2nd time. You see that his hand on the forehead is distracting the audience from his eyes looking towards the script. It’s moments after checking the text that the line “One Simply Does Not Walk Into Mordor” is uttered by Boromir.
