LOTR: Why The Grey Havens Scene Was So Tough To Film

The behind-the-scenes videos for the Lord of the Rings trilogy are perhaps some of the most well-known behind-the-scenes sequences in film history, both due to the popularity of the franchise as well as how extensive the making-of sequences actually are. The Extended Editions of Lord of the Rings have hours upon hours of this footage, with the cast and crew outlining the experience of filming the trilogy in New Zealand. So many of these stories have become inside jokes within the fandom, and have provided fans with countless “fun facts” they can spout to their less-knowledgable friends during a LOTR rewatch.
