Popverse's top stories of the day

"The world is changed," says Galadriel, as Peter Jackson's adaptation of The Fellowship of the Ring opens, "Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it."

Well, that's not quite true, Galadriel. In fact, some of the people that were there for the filming of the Fellowship (and Two Towers, and Return of the King) got together recently! Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, and John Rhys-Davies came together in the PNW shire known as Seattle to speak to Popverse video producer and LotR megafan Ashley V. Robinson at Emerald City Comic Con 2024, for a one-hour panel unlike any other in Middle-Earth!

Since One Does Not Simply Walk Into Seattle (unless you live there, I guess), Popverse is making this panel available to premium members anywhere in the world!
