Journey through Middle-earth
Just over twenty years ago, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, played on the silver screen and catapulted New Zealand cinema onto the world stage. Since then, Wētā Workshop has made countless props, costumes, prosthetics, dressed entire armies and more for an illustrious range of films. Now, we thanked you for the support you’ve shown us over the years.
We dusted off the keys and opened the vault to some of our most precious hero props and armour. You can experience first-hand, original pieces that were used on set while filming The Lord of the Rings Trilogies. Find various costumes in the Wētā Cave in Wellington and Auckland. For those of you that can't come to see them in person, there's some information about some of the hero props and costumes from the movies below.
