There And Back Again: A Super-Smooth Hobbits Tale

There And Back Again

When I sent this video to Susana earlier this was our exchange:

Susana: I have not clicked on this link yet but my face is :D
Me: It should be.

Elijah Wood (Frodo), Sean Astin (Sam), Billy Boyd (Pippin) and Dominic Monaghan (Merry) are reuniting and it makes us nostalgia so bad.

I think I actually melted and dripped right off my chair when I watched it. The fun-loving Lord of the Rings pals got back together thanks to Empire Magazine and well, I guess thanks to Peter Jackson too. “The new issue is more bursting with revelry and nostalgia than a Friday night at the Prancing Pony,” they write, “There’s tall tales – well, tallish tales – memories; behind-the-scenes pics from Aragorn himself, Viggo Mortensen; Oscar night reflections from Ian McKellen, Peter Jackson and Mortensen; and rarely-seen concept art.” Seriously though, this Hobbitses trailer is enough.
