The Hobbit New Zealand


| December 18, 2012

Wai Law has been to see hotly-anticipated The Hobbit. Here, he shares with us a few of his thoughts on the film.

The first installment of Peter Jackson’s new middle-earth trilogy is another serving of wonderful wizardry, fantasy, adventure and dramatic back-drops. This prequel is set 60 years before the ‘Lord of the Rings’ and tells the tale of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, who embarks on a quest with wizard Gandalf and 13 dwarves across middle-earth to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug the dragon.

Unsurprisingly, the cinematography is excellent and offers inspiring scenery of New Zealand throughout.  The picturesque landscapes of New Zealand provide a convincing and believable setting for Tolkien’s imaginary planet.  The director has described New Zealand as the perfect middle-earth; the beautiful and lush farmland contrasting with the rugged, mountain terrain and snowy peaks make New Zealand the ideal place to base this story.

It is anticipated that The Hobbit will be a huge favourite amongst cinema viewers across the world, at the very least viewers should be inspired by the handsome and dramatic scenery of New Zealand.
