`If I ever had any doubts about finding new locations for three more movies, they disappeared as soon as we began looking. New Zealand's infinite capacity for surprise didn't let us down ... As you will see, as you read the accounts of those involved, we faced our own challenges - not exactly fire-breathing dragons, but wild weather can be every bit as challenging.' Peter Jackson
