Fiji Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Josh Gad is do­ing great work to raise funds for NGOs and char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tions who are help­ing the most vul­ner­a­ble cope with the coro­n­avirus out­break and its eco­nomic im­pact.

Gad hosts Hol­ly­wood stars who ap­peared in iconic movies on his show Re­united Apart. The lat­est episode was a mega The Lord of the Rings re­union. The guests in­cluded di­rec­tor Peter Jack­son, screen­writer

Philippa Boyens Sean Austin, Eli­jah Wood, Or­lando Bloom, Do­minic Mon­aghan, Andy Serkis, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Bean, Viggo Mortensen, Billy Boyd, Karl Ur­ban, Mi­randa

Otto and Sir Ian McKellen. In the video, Josh Gad teases the re­union by say­ing, “It was a tril­ogy that would make main­stream words like hob­bits, orcs, ring­wraiths, elves, dwarves, wiz­ards.”

He con­tin­ued, “Of course, a

place that all of us would like to take shelter in right now, The Shire.”

Apart from shar­ing fas­ci­nat­ing in­sights about the four years of film­ing and their ex­pe­ri­ences in New Zealand, the cast reen­acted iconic scenes from the movies, in­clud­ing the first time we meet Frodo and Gan­dalf, the lat­ter of whom is ar­riv­ing in the Shire.

Re­united Apart.
