‘Lord Of The Rings’ Cast Celebrate Trilogy’s 20th Anniversary In Star-Studded Rap

The Lord Of The Rings has a special place in a lot of people's hearts as it is often regarded as one of the best cinematic trilogies ever made.

The trilogy recently celebrated its 20th anniversary — yeah, I know, feel old? — and so one of TV's biggest fans of the trilogy decided to do something very special to celebrate that milestone.

It is widely-known that Stephen Colbert is a massive fan of everything Lord Of The Rings.

On Wednesday, Colbert decided to rap about his love for the Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring as it celebrated its 20th anniversary.

However, Colbert drafted in some pretty big names from the franchise and beyond to help in this endeavour.

A large portion of the cast were happy to take part in the celebratory rap, which took many fans of the franchise by surprise.

While introducing the rap, Colbert said of the film celebrating its anniversary:

"It was 20 years ago this Sunday that this movie kicked off my favorite film series of all time [...] If you ask me, there is no better film series. Lord of the Rings is without a doubt the greatest trilogy in movie history. I know I may have said that many times before, but I have never, not once, rapped it."

Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, and many more appeared alongside Colbert.

Including Wood and Astin, the rest of the cast who appeared in the rap included the likes of Orlando Bloom, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Viggo Mortensen, Andy Serkis, as well as Hugo Weaving.

Method Man and Killer Mike also made appearances in the video, which you can watch below.

The cast of stars also took time to take a few hilariously unnecessary potshots at Anna Kendrick for her appearances in the Twilight movies, to which Kendrick herself made a cameo while looking at the camera and saying, "I'm barely in those movies!"

Fans of the 'Lord Of The Rings' franchise were amazed by the video.

Many took to social media to praise the bizarrely unexpected rap. However, there were some super fans who were critical of the elvish rapping which occurs in the rap — now there is a sentence you don't get to write every day.

I for one am looking forward to more raps about famous movie trilogies, some of which would probably be better than others!
