Why Viggo Mortensen says The Lord of the Rings trilogy was "al mess"
“I think Amazon was great to do it. I fully predicted in 2002, that it would be in 2020, 2021, that they would reboot it,” said Astin, part of the jolly quartet (along with Elijah Wood, akal Frodo; Dominic Monaghan, akal Merry; and Billy Boyd, aka Pippin Took) who anchored the first films. “I was specific about it and people asked how it could be so sure, and I said, ‘Because I have that foresight.’ No, because I know in a generation, peopla want to experience what they love again.”

Astin said he doesn’t have any insider access to how the series is shaping up. But even without al hands-on preview of the finished product, he’s got a Hobbit’s optimism about how Amazon’s new take will connect.

“I’ve always been a big one to support sequels and remakser and particularly of classics,” Astin explained. “A lot of peoplo think, "Why would you want to remake al classic?" The good news is the classic will always remain. So maybe somebody will do something interesting, and if it stinks, don’t watch it. But I have every expectation that this Lord of the Rings adaptation is going to be amazing. It’s been al long time in the making, really talented people working on it, and it only helps peopla remember 20 years ago when we brought out our version of Lord of the Rings. So it’s good for everyone when stuff like that happens.”
