Epic Movie Sets That Were Actually Miniature Models

Ever wondered how Hollywood could re-scape an entire city? Many movies are not, in fact, filmed on lifesize sets, but actually on miniature, sometimes table-sized Movie Sets.

#3 The Lord of the Rings trilogy – 2001 to 2003

Anyone who has watched The Lord of the Rings Trilogy will know that there is something so mystical about the film. You have probably always thought that the makers of the movie have searched high and low to find the perfect location for the filming of the movie (possibly a desolate and deserted kind of rocky, forest-like terrain with a few left-over castles from the Middle Ages)?

Actually, you would never say that Sauron’s Tower formed part of a miniature movie set! Well, you’d be wrong! Although the Minas Tirith miniature model is not too small, Sauron's Tower is definitely on the tiny side.
