Fantasy is one of those genres that used to have a nice audience, but thanks to the release of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit series, the Harry Potter franchise, and many more since the turn of the century, that's no longer true. More fans than ever are crowding cinemas around the world to see the latest fantasy movies from a plethora of talented moviemakers, including Peter Jackson, Chris Columbus, Guillermo del Toro, and many more. Because fantasy movies are so detailed, they are filled with as much information as possible.

Fans of fantasy movies have picked apart every aspect of the characters and events, finding interesting details that make them all the better. Still, no matter how many times you watch 21st-century fantasy movies, there's no way to see every detail that shows up on the screen - after all, they're absolutely packed with small but impactful details. Nevertheless, plenty of people have noticed them and posted their findings on the MovieDetails subreddit. This list takes a look at some of the best small details from fantasy movies that demand a rewatch.
