star wars? Indiana Jones? The godfather? Back to the future? Stephen Colbert tells you to fuck them. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the Late Show host decided to declare The Peter Jackson Trilogy as the best of all time. And he did it in as a unique way possibly with a rap video of a reunion.

Yes, you read that right. Jacket returned Lord of the Rings stars Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Hugo Weaving, Andy Serkis, Orlando Bloom and Viggo Mortensen for a fun rap video to claim the title of the series. Rappers Method Man and Killer Mike join in, as does Anna Kendrick, just for fun. Check this out.

Whenever a night show or something like that puts out a video like this, I think about the logistics. Think of all the planning and time that went into getting all these people together. Or, if they’re not together, just convince them to be a part of it. For example, imagine you’re one of Hugo Weaving’s representatives and get a request from The Late Show that’s like “We’re doing something like a Lord of the Rings reunion sketch for the 20th anniversary. A lot of your costars are doing it.” Oh, and we want you to rap in elf while Andy Serkis plays a flute.” And then he says ok, just wild.

But it is so, so worth it. These kinds of sketches make you remember how incredible the Lord of the Rings movies were and unbelievable that they actually happened. Imagine if Fellowship of the Ring had bombed? That would have been brutal. Thankfully not, and the movies just got better and better over time.

The official 20th anniversary of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is on December 19. How are you going to celebrate that?
