Trivia

New Zealand's Army was cast as extras for large battle scenes in this movie, but was forced to back out, due to having to serve as peacekeepers in East Timor.


Quotes

Galadriel: The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest...


Goofs

When Legolas spots the "crebain" birds from Dunland and warns the fellowship to take cover, his eyes are brown. Yet as an elf and the rest of the movie his eyes are blue. This is because Orlando Bloom had to wear contacts to change the color of his eyes, but could not wear them consistently because they scratched his corneas. Most of the time, his eye color was digitally changed, but they missed it in this shot.


Crazy Credits

Toward the end of the credits, there are some lines in Maori, thanking the people of New Zealand, where the movie was filmed.: He mihi nui hoki ki nga tangata whenua o Aotearoa. Ma rangi raua ko papa tatou e manaaki, e tiaki hei nga tau e tu mai nei.


Alternate Versions

The extended version was originally planned to be rated R, but due to most of the new scenes focusing on more character development than extra violence. The PG-13 rating remained intact, if not slightly more intense.
