I agree [In reply to] Can't Post

In between Two Towers and Return of the King an exhibition toured the world with costumes, props, models, original artwork and other things relating specifically to the films. I saw it at the Science Museum in London and it was amazing to see the work up close and appreciate the skill that went into it and the details that don't show up on screen. Theoden's armour, for example - just breathtaking. Because, whatever anyone thinks of the adaptation, the writing and so on, would anyone disagree that the actual artwork that goes into these films is exceptional in its own right and worth celebrating?

So that kind of display would be excellent as an exhibition on a permanent site, I think. It would enable some of the larger things - like actual sets - to be displayed and preserved. Something akin to the Harry Potter studio tour at Leavesden, but with a style of its own. And I suppose, being film-related, it would have to be in New Zealand, though selfishly I'd like it to be in the UK, so that I could see it.

But a theme park? With rides and all allied paraphernalia? No. All that seems so alien to the spirit of the books.
