The Lord of the rings official movie guide by Brian Sibley( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in 6 languages and held by 1,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mythos, landscapes and characters that Tolkien created are nothing short of spectacular, and it has taken four decades for cinema technology to reach the necessary level of sophistication to bring them to life. Now, Peter Jackson has accomplished the extraordinary feat of making three motion pictures simultaneously to capture Tolkien's vision in its entirety. For the past several years, Peter Jackson and his team of dedicated filmmakers have been working day and night to bring J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece of epic adventure, The Lord of the Rings, to the screen. They have filmed all over the landscapes of New Zealand, and drawn on the skills of a small army of artists -- including digital wizards, medieval weapons experts, stone sculptors, linguists, costumers, makeup designers, blacksmiths and model builders -- together with a cast of internationally renowned actors and literally thousands of extras, to make this ambitious dream come true. And the boundaries of special effects have been pushed to, and beyond, their limits to make The Lord of the Rings Trilogy a ground-breaking and visually stunning cinematic experience. Designed as a celebration of the films, The Lord of the Rings Official Movie Guide is a lavishly illustrated behind-the-scenes guide which includes full-color photos of the cast, locations, sets, monsters and costumes, together with exclusive interviews with Peter Jackson and all the principal cast. It also features an entertaining overview of the conception, design and filming of the trilogy over the last five years, which will give the reader a privileged insight into the making of the most important movie trilogy of the decade
