At the top of the list for Lord of the Rings fans is a Hobbit reunion with the film trilogy stars Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, and Dominic Monaghan.

Plus there are many other special guests, activities, and events to experience from August 25 to 28 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

“It’s going to be an exciting four days as we celebrate being back in a big way with our community. Last fall’s “Limited Edition” was a blast, but it’s great to return to our full-scale gathering,” said Andrew Moyes, vice president of FAN EXPO HQ, in a release. “There’s truly something for everyone this year with celebrity guests from all genres – sci-fi, fantasy, action, horror, comics, and superheroes – in addition to memorable cast reunions and other thrilling events and programming.”

Frodo (Wood), Samwise Gamgee (Astin), Pippin (Boyd), and Merry (Monaghan) will meet and greet fans celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which launched the legendary film franchise. The actors will also take part in a separately ticketed, after-hours, Middle-earth-shattering special event, The Hobbits: Unexpected Reunion.
