An Afternoon in Hobbiton

We visited the outdoor filming set of Hobbiton, which was built on the Alexander family farm just outside of Matamata. There’s over 50 different hobbit holes created with great attention to detail. They were constructed to different scales depending on if just hobbits, or men/wizards were being filmed in the scene. Pretty fricken’ nerdaliciously awesome stuff!!

You can see the set designers got the scale just right to make wizard Angela look giant compared to tiny, hobbit Chris
