This may or may not count... :p

224. In one edition of The Fellowship of the Ring, there is a typo of Frodo's name. I believe Elrond says, "Bring forth the Ring, Fodo." :lol:

226: The scene in FotR when Aragorn was fighting the Uruk-hai who shot Boromir, the Uruk threw his dagger at Aragorn's face, which Aragorn only narrowly deflected with his sword. This was actually an accident. The guy who was playing the Uruk meant to throw it into the tree behind Viggo but he missed. So Viggo's sword swipe was his real attempt to save himself from being stabbed! PJ found the scene so convincing that he put it into the movie. Thank god Viggo was handy with his sword... :D

228) During filming, Brad Dourif spoke in his Grima accent even in real life, so his voice wouldn't accidentally slip out of the accent when the cameras were rolling.

99) Ian McKellen and Elijah Wood ransacked the Bag End set, taking random artifact that they thought neat.


230) I believe that Elijah Wood took one of the maps on Bilbo's table.
231) At the end of the Council of Elrond scene when the Fellowship is lined up, the hobbits are kneeling so that they will look shorter.

233) Part of the Paths of the Dead scene was filmed nearby Orlando Bloom's house in Wellington.
234) Billy Boyd wrote the song Pippin sings in RotK because the person who was supposed to do it didn't have time to finish it.

235: When Arwen's face got scratched by a branch when she was riding through the forest with Frodo, it was on accident. Kinda obvious, right?
In the next scene, her face is perfectly healed. :lol:

113.Contrary topopular belief the word "Arda" doesn't mean the Earth it acualy means the Solar System.

114.Furthermore the word "Ambar" is the corect word which means earth acording to Tolkien.


Arda can be from the word of Earth in Arabic...

126. The scene where Sam and Rosie are getting married was awkward for Sean Astin, because his wife was on scene. So to distract him, Viggo Mortenson kissed Billy Boyd. :D


They did not lol. Kissed really? lol that's so sweet.
