AceShowbiz - Josh Gad has pulled off his most impressive "Reunited Apart" cast reunion yet - by assembling all nine members of the "Lord of the Rings" Fellowship, plus director Peter Jackson and other franchise stars including Andy Serkis and Liv Tyler.
The "Frozen (2013)" actor's latest star-studded Zoom teleconference meeting, taped last week, aired on YouTube on Sunday, May 31, and it has already raised more than $90,000 (£73,000) to benefit bosses at No Kids Hungry, who are working to feed hungry schoolchildren during the coronavirus pandemic.
Chiefs at U.S. company Cheerios have also donated $1.3 million (£1 million) in support of the virtual get-together.
Josh managed to assemble the leads from "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" - the first film in the famed franchise, released in December, 2001 - plus fellow cast members Miranda Otto, Andy Serkis, Liv Tyler, Karl Urban, and Hugo Weaving, as well as director Peter Jackson, composer Howard Shore, and screenwriter Philippa Boyens.
The 50-minute chat included all nine members of the Fellowship showing off the matching tattoos they had inked when the third and final film in the series, "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King", wrapped. They also shared set secrets and anecdotes.
The reunion is part of Gad's "Reunited Apart" series, which previously brought together the casts of "The Goonies", "Back to the Future", and "Splash". Find out how Gad has pulled off the reunions here.
