Für J.R.R. Tolkiens Herrn der Ringe empfinde ich eine sehr starke Zuneigung und Hochachtung, und die Filme, die wir machen, sind wirklich meine Sicht von Tolkiens Welt, geschaffen in Zusammenarbeit mit den vielen anderen, die bei diesem Projekt mitwirken. Peter Jackson
Einmal führte Peter ein paar VIPs durch die Studios. Er zeigte seinen Gästen die Hunderte von Modellen, Büsten und Statuetten, die in Regalen aufgereiht waren, und er wies sie auf die Tausende von Skizzen hin, die vom Boden bis zur Decke die Wände bedeckten, und die ganze Zeit erzählte er: von Hobbits, Zwergen und Elben, vom Wächter im Wasser, dem Balrog und den Ringgeistern; er sprach von allen Einzelheiten der Geschichte Mittelerdes und beschrieb all die verschiedenen Orte, Figuren und Ereignisse. Dann hielt er einen Augenblick inne, drehte sich mit einem breiten Lächeln um und sagte: "Wissen Sie, daraus könnte man ein großartiges Buch machen." John Howe

Es wäre verlockend, Peter Jackson mit einem mächtigen Magier zu vergleichen, der einen Kinozauber beschwört, wenn seine Statur nicht eher an einen Hobbit denken ließe.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0618154027, Hardcover)

It's one of the most anticipated movies ever, and now you can see for yourself how the magic of Tolkien's fantasy masterpiece was created on screen in The Lord of the Rings: Official Movie Guide. Brian Sibley's straightforward approach takes the reader from the initial conception of the movie as it was developed and passed around studios (it initially started life as a two-hour condensed version of the three novels) to the months of complicated special-effects work necessary to do justice to Tolkien's extraordinary imagination. The book features interviews with all the key cast and production members and is liberally decorated with full-color photographs and behind-the-scenes images from the film itself. Sibley manages to document perfectly the filmmakers' painstaking attention to detail, much of which will be missed by many moviegoers, but he also captures a sense of camaraderie from all involved who wanted to make the best movie possible.

If it's facts and background trivia you are after, then this is the best place to be--the perfect starting point for those new to Tolkien or eager to find out more about how epic movies are put together. Dedicated Lord of the Rings fans who have been following the epic moviemaking process via the Internet won't find anything here they didn't already know, but this is still a very good companion no matter what level of knowledge or understanding you have of the greatest work of fantastic fiction ever written. --Jonathan Weir, Amazon.co.uk
