Nerdist Presents: The LORD OF THE RINGS and FROZEN Mashup Parody by THE HILLYWOOD SHOW

Hilly and Hannah Hindi have done it again. The dynamic sister duo is part of the Nerdist Alliance and have created another dramatic yet amusing parody for the latest episode of The Hillywood Show®. Last time we saw them in action, they were sharing the screen with zombies in a play on The Walking Dead, and this time, well, they’ve taken the ring to Mordor in a parody of The Lord of the Rings.

Hilly stars as Samwise Gamgee, and Hannah plays the role of Frodo. They go on adventures through Middle-earth that lead to the fires of Mount Doom and when it comes time to put the One Ring to rest, Sam tells Frodo to “Let It Go.” Yes, the Hindis have succeeded in taking the popular tune from Frozen and making it work exceptionally well with Lord of the Rings-inspired lyrics. They deserve their own rings of power for that. Powerful vocals by Andrew Bates and Brian Hall bring it all together.

As with all The Hillywood Show® videos, the Hindis have nailed it when it comes to costumes, makeup, and presenting the overall look of the film. They don’t kid around when it comes to production value. I’m sure Hilly’s experiences with Middle-earth help. She won a trip to the 2003 premiere of The Return of the King in Wellington, New Zealand, and interviewed the cast of the film on the red carpet for AOL. I’m surprised she didn’t just move into the Shire and never leave.

    All of their parodies are amazing but This parody is out of this world good! You can’t help but feel their raw emotion (that you see in the behind the scenes) for not just fulfilling the character emotions but also their own. There are no words to express my love for this parody & for them. I am blown away…. Their talent & skills are unlimited. Amazing.

    • Villy says:

      Are you a Whovian at all? They did a Doctor Who Time Warp video and it reallydid sound exactly like David Tennant.They get some amazing people to do the impressions.

      • Colin says:

        What’s even better is they sound exactly like Dave Tenant putting on an English accent (he’s Scottish). Much kudos.
