Filming for the Middle-earth TV show might have moved to Fiordland Can't Post

No confirmation that the film crew seen in the area is from Amazon, but strong speculation is pointing in that direction.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Of course they'll film in Fiordland! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

For $1.3billion they'll use the most extravagant locations possible. Lucky crew!

Fiordland's simply stunning. [In reply to] Can't Post

A ridiculous amount of 'you've got to be kidding me' landscapes.

Interesting! [In reply to] Can't Post

We drove past that airport several times recently, and I did think it looked busier that I'd have expected. If I'd suspected this, I'd have tried for a closer look :)

Do we find happiness so often that we should turn it off the box when it happens to sit there?

An update on filming: [In reply to] Can't Post

This is on theonering.net's Facebook page, from a US actor based in NZ:

Just confirming with a friend involved in the shoot: The production is NOT on hold or shut down. The Auckland sites are. Shooting in the rest of Aotearoa New Zealand continues with additional safety precautions in place under Level 2 conditions.

FYI, Auckland's moved into what we call level 3 lockdown - work from home unless you're a critical worker, no travel outside the Auckland region - while the rest of the nation has moved up to level 2 due to a gradually spreading outbreak of Covid in in the southern part of Auckland.
