    This has propbably been posted before, But We for one had looked at relocating overseas before the LOR films and NZ was one of the options, But I must say the LOR films did such a marvelous job depicting the beauty of NZ that helped cement the thought in our heads.

    I didn't see LOTR until the 3rd one came out.
    But yeah it's now one of the main reasons i'd watch the movies.
    I took my daughter to see the Prince Caspian movie and when it was real quite they say
    "we are back in Narnia" my 6 year old daughter shouts "no their not, they are in New Zealand"

    I'd say Eagle V's Shark had more of an influence for us.
    That and Billy Connolly.

    watched the last of the trilogy while in NZ visiting for the 1st time but thats about as close as the relationship between the two gets, would absolutely love to go visit the areas where they were filming tho!

    We saw Prince Caspian for the first time just after a trip to the coromadel, and I was like- oh look it's cathedral cove.

    We saw the films after we'd tentatively decided on NZ.
