Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings interview

In the video below Peter Jackson discusses the pleasures and trials of rematsering his Middle earth stories. He says “Although they are 6 movies telling one continuos story, they didn’t have a consistency with the  look.
It’s fun to have all the toys now; we didn’t have all this in the old days.
It’s not a story of heroes, or superheroes, it’s a story of ordinary people who set out to save their world and through a long series of hardships they ultimately achieve that. That was what was so powerful about the books that Professor Tolkein wrote, the novels, and that’s what people responded to when our movies came out all those years ago. I think it’s still as relevant today, as it ever was.

Zavvi also have some other LOTR merch. For example LOTR prints, and LOTR clothing! They also have some of the fantastic figurines made by the amazing Weta creatives, like Gandalf and Saruman the White.
