Miranda Otto (Éowyn), Andy Serkis (Gollum), Liv Tyler (Arwen), Karl Urban (Éomer) and Hugo Weaving (Elrond) also joined the Zoom, as did director Peter Jackson, along with the film's composer and co-writer. And it was all for a good cause.
The Lord of the Rings reunion benefits No Kids Hungry, a nonprofit working amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic to provide children who depend on school lunches with meals. In addition to a $1.3 million donation from Cheerio, Gad tweeted that the episode raised some $80,000, as of Monday.
The reunion is part of Gad's Reunited Apart series, which previously brought back together the casts of such films as The Goonies, Back to the Future and Splash. Find out how Gad has pulled off the reunions in the video below.
