‘Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers’ cut Hobbit nude scene, actor reveals

A few months ago, several fans protested when rumors pointed out that the series based on “The Lord of the Rings” could include nude scenes.

Still, it seems the idea has already been addressed during the trilogy directed by Peter Jackson.

The information was revealed by Dominic Monaghan during an interview for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Even so, the Hobbit performer Merry said the scene would be somewhat comical and have no hint of sexism.

“There would be nude scenes in the movies. I remember that [a roteirista] Philippa Boyens wrote such a scene. She said: ‘This is a new scene that we’re going to shoot next week, with the Ents [as árvores falantes]. When Merry and Pippin (Billy Boyd) climb Treebeard, he’s scared and shakes the branches, causing you to fall, and when you hit every branch on the way down, when you hit the ground, you’re naked. And Merry turns to Pippin and says, “It’s cold, isn’t it? And Pippin said, “Hold me, Merry. “

It’s clear Boyens was joking as he wrote this scene, but if it were recorded it would likely be a bomb for Tolkien fans, as the author never encouraged nudity in his works.

Recalling that the next Amazon Prime series will have an expenditure of NZ $ 650 million, just to record the first season. This corresponds to US $ 464 million.
