The teaser reveals Sean Astin, Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom, Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd, and Ian McKellen will make an appearance, but a recent post by Dominic Monaghan on Instagram confirmed the attendance of many other core cast and crew, including Sean Bean, Viggo Mortensen, Andy Serkis, John Rhys-Davies, Karl Urban, Miranda Otto, and Peter Jackson.
This upcoming Lord of the Rings reunion is the fourth Gad had arranged for Reunited Apart, following The Goonies, Back to the Future, and Splash. The specials aim to raise money for COVID-19-related charitable causes.
