Monaghan had shared a throwback photo the day before of the group with fresh young actors in the early days of filming LOTR together and teased fans with their appearance at Liverpool Comic Con.

The actors showed funny expressions as they posed together at what looked like an airport. Monaghan, standing on the left, pouted while Boyd and Wood, standing in the middle, beamed broad smiles at the camera. Bloom crouched down in front, also with a wide, open grin.

“This weekend we're lining up like Voltron at #liverpoolcomiccon,” Monaghan explained in the caption.

“Best photo ❤️,” Bloom wrote in response in the comments section.

Monaghan also posted a throwback photo of the foursome on Instagram on May 3.

The reunion of the former co-stars comes after the group previously reunited in May 2022.

In a photo shared on Monaghan's Instagram at the time, the actors were seen taking a group selfie while eating together at a restaurant.

“It was another one of those who managed to knock it out of the park, hit it in Row Z, slap my ass and call me Lucy, any of it was recorded, none of us would be working again …food,” Monaghan wrote in the caption, reflecting on the joyful reunion.

Monaghan appeared alongside Wood, Boyd and Bloom in LOTR as hobbits Merry, Frodo and Pippin and Elf Legolas in the original film series, which ran from 2001 to 2003. The cast was also seen in The Hobbit Prequel trilogy released in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
