Elijah Wood will be forever remembered for his role as Frodo Baggins in the hit Lord Of The Rings movie trilogy and he is set to reprise that famous role, when he returns for the Peter Jackson prequel The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Elijah has revealed how much of the movie he will be appearing in and also shared how he prepared his return to the role.
Elijah explained, “Very little, very little. It’s just a little cameo really, but it should only be a cameo, mainly because Frodo’s not alive at the time of The Hobbit. Before we started, I watched Fellowship again, just to remember the way that he spoke. Outside of that it was revisiting something I’d spent the better part of four years playing, and it was just a joy. It felt like a giant family reunion in a way.”
He added, “The weirdest thing was being on set, looking down at my feet and it just feeling oddly normal, like, 'Here we are, doing another scene at Bag End, 10 years later’”. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey also sees the return of Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett and Orlando Bloom and is released on December 14, 2012.
