The Lord of the Rings series will soon be filmed in the UK.
In the first season, Prime Video decided to shoot the series in New Zealand. This seemed like a fairly permanent decision, but surprisingly, production has moved to the UK.
Amazon Studios’ decision was made for several reasons. New Zealand remains completely closed. Every time a cast or crew members leave the country, that person must be quarantined for 14 days. If someone comes back, that person has to do it again. This is not an easy task for production and planning.
Additionally, Amazon wants to have a larger presence in the UK. Furthermore, this country gives significant tax breaks for film productions that take place there, which is a problem in New Zealand. So Amazon Studios decided to move production.
The question is whether this is an appropriate choice. Peter Jackson Lord of the ringsA trilogy that makes the franchise synonymous with New Zealand. Jackson focused a lot on environments during the recordings and you can see that in the movies. The series will do just that using familiar settings.
But soon he did not return. The question is whether the UK can have the same look as New Zealand, with the same feeling people had with the movies and soon the first season of the series.
