Hollywood actor Josh Gad is making our lockdown days more bearable with his Reunited Apart series, which gets celebrities online and do a live chat show for the fans. Now, to this list of virtual and distant encounters, we add the expected meeting of the cast of the Lord of the Rings. The third movie, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, went on to win 11 Oscars, one of the three movies in history to do so.

The Lord of the Rings films are based on the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy book series and were released between 2001 to 2003. His YouTube channel, "Reunited Apart", has seen the likes of the cast of "The Goonies", 'Back to the Future", and Tom Hanks' "Splash' comedy all reunite virtually over the internet.
Andy Serkis, Karl Urban, Viggo Mortensen, Mirando Otto, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Bean and Liv Tyler will also make appearances. Gad asks these members of the fellowship to join him for a reunion, and then we have Sir Ian McKellan (Gandalf) giving one of his powerful lines from the series confirming the reunion.
