Film | Travel

Since the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in cinemas worldwide, to millions of moviegoers and Tolkien fans the world over, New Zealand is now the embodiment of ?Middle-earth?. To assist the army of The Lord of the Rings fans to explore ?Middle-earth?, The Lord of the Rings Location Guidebook was published by HarperCollins Publishers (NZ) in November 2002. This definitive guidebook to movie locations used in The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers offers a unique insight into the landscape that helped bring JRR Tolkien?s epic tale to life. Author Ian Brodie is a devoted Tolkien fan, (he had read The Lord of the Rings 39 times at last count!), and is also director of the NZ Fighter Pilots Museum in Wanaka. With contributions from cast and crew and an article on location selection by illustrator Alan Lee, this guidebook offers unprecedented insights into the process of turning New Zealand into the embodiment of Tolkien?s intricate world. Ian Brodie has skilfully woven together local history, movie lore, Maori mythology and Elvish legend to provide the definitive guide for the practical traveller. And because every good Hobbit knows the importance of a comfortable bed and good food, accommodation and dining tips are included. Detailed maps and easy to follow directions are enhanced with GPS references to accurately pinpoint major locations. Website and tour company information is also provided to help those looking for specialist The Lord of the Rings activities and tours. This definitive guide is lavishly illustrated with photographs of the locations, and stunning movie stills provided by New Line Cinema. Paperback (A-Format)
