Wellington is considered the "Middle of Middle-Earth" since the sets, costumes and digital effects are created in Weta Studios that call the Kiwi capital home. Thousands of film fans are flocking to the (other) windy city for location tours and studio glimpses. If you're really interested in seeing what all the fuss is about, keep in mind that Wellington isn't the only fan location, it just might be the biggest; remember our trip to the real Hobbiton?
Even though we kind of expect something Hobbit to come out of NZ every time a movie is released, we still get giddy about a little fun airport art. Especially when it has to do with flying wizards.
