THE LORD OF THE RINGS Cast Reunites For Epic Rap With Stephen Colbert
If you ever had any doubt just how incredible the cast for The Lord of the Rings was, well let this video of the cast reuniting for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to rap about the 20th anniversary of The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings be your proof. Stephen Colbert has shared his love for The Lord of the Rings for decades, so it’s no surprise he would manage to get our favorite characters from Middle Earth together for this.
In the introduction for the “No. 1 Trilly Music Video,” Colbert said, “It was twenty years ago this Sunday that this movie kicked off my favorite film series of all time. If you ask me, there is no better film series. Lord of the Rings is without a doubt the greatest trilogy in movie history. I know I may have said that many times before, but I have never—not once—rapped it. Until now.”
With Colbert’s show about to enter its holiday break, Colbert did not want to miss his opportunity to sing the praises of the anniversary when it arrives on December 19th. He even went as far as taking a shot at the beloved Harry Potter franchise saying that LOTR deserves an anniversary and recognition that the Harry Potter films are getting with their HBO Max reunion.
The skit included cast members Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Hugo Weaving, Andy Serkis, Orlando Bloom, and Viggo Mortensen who were joined by Method Man, Killer Mike, and Anna Kendrick.
