Orlando Bloom Celebrated Lord Of The Rings’ 15th Anniversary With Throwback Pics

Legolas took us down memory lane instead of to Mordor

Monday (December 19) was a monumental day in the pop culture world. Fans mourned Camila Cabello leaving Fifth Harmony, J.K. Rowling helped create a Harry Potter tribute to the Pulse nightclub victims, and Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring turned 15 years old.

To honor the latter's anniversary, Orlando Bloom, who played long-haired elf Legolas in the LOTR trilogy and in two of the Hobbit films, shared a collage of pics on Instagram. "[Fifteen] years ago today, #TheLordOfTheRings: The Fellowship of the Ring hit theaters," he captioned, "and the rest, as you know, is history." He then linked out to an entire Facebook album filled with fun behind-the-scenes pics.
