New Galadriel-centered footage Can't Post

Some new, Galadriel-centered footage can be seen can be seen in an advert pulled from Youtube and posted on Reddit:

The clip has Gigwit helping Galadriel perform a Wonder Woman-esque move in the fight against the ice troll. The scene will no doubt cause a wave of scorn among the YT crowd big enough to sink Numenor.

Different link [In reply to] Can't Post

I think you linked to the wrong Reddit post, but I did find a recent r/LOTR_on_Prime post with a video like what you describe:

https://www.reddit.com/...a_second_youtube_ad/

The sword jump scene sure is ... something. It should please the people who want ROP to be like the PJ films (though "should" and "will" are two different things Tongue).

And the already infamous “sword jump” scene was shown in footage released about a week ago in a Brazilian TV spot.

And as much as I didn’t like most of Legolas’ stunts in the films, I liked his stunts in Moria with the cave troll, and I see this in a similar light. It’s not too flashy. Gig with was just giving her a leg up.

Yeah, [In reply to] Can't Post

Legolas's otherworldliness was subtle in FOTR and TTT (walking on snow, running up the Cave Troll's chain, leaping onto the galloping horse); it was in ROTK that it started to get a bit on the nose.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Though I hesitate to place shield-surfing in the subtle category. Smile

Forgot about that! [In reply to] Can't Post

But I admit that I enjoyed the absurdity of it. Wink

Gigwit [In reply to] Can't Post

As all the old timers will recognize, "Gigwit" is the spiritual successor to the immortal Figwit. In Peter Jackson's FOTR, when Frodo offers to take the One Ring, the wide-eyed elf who had no name was affectionately dubbed "Figwit", for Frodo Is Great, Who Is That? Jackson was so amused that he brought the same actor (Bret McKenzie) back for scenes in ROTK and in The Hobbit. Fans viewing the Galadriel clip shown on Stephen Colbert's show have taken to calling the unnamed elf "Gigwit" for Galadriel Is Great, Who Is That?

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.
