Billy Boyd: The Last Goodbye
16 years, six movies, one epic story.
And what better way to finish the trilogy than by having one of the original cast members singing the franchise to its rest – Billy Boyd, otherwise known as ‘Pippin’ Peregrin Took.
It has been known for a while now that the actor/musician was being given the honour of writing the end credits song. After Neil Finn’s ‘Song of the Lonely Mountain’ and Ed Sheeran’s ‘I See Fire’, I thought this should be interesting.
‘Interesting’ turned out to be the understatement of the year.
The music is haunting, and I can imagine it playing as the credits roll for the final time on this journey of epic proportions.
The video is fantastic, with a variety of clips from the original trilogy, the Hobbit films, and the off-screen interactions of cast and crew.
Billy Boyd, you may never see this, but…this was beautiful.
And I cannot wait to see it played as the credits roll on the big screen before me, come December.
