Amazon Studios has decided to move television production for the “Lord of the Rings” series from New Zealand to the UK. The world’s largest online creator announced this to the New Zealand government. Economic Development Minister Stuart Nash expressed disappointment over the move, saying “the government was informed of the decision yesterday.”

“Amazon Studios intends to continue post-production on the first season in New Zealand until June 2022. Shooting for the second season will begin in the UK.” Nash said Amazon is looking to expand its manufacturing location in the UK and expand its presence there.

The American company is spending $465 million on the shooting of the first season alone. As a result, New Zealand is withdrawing five percent of the grant from film production grants. Another 20 percent grant has already been used according to the government. According to the New Zealand government, Amazon has been filming in Auckland since last year and employs over 1200 people in production, with another 700 indirectly involved. Positive effects on New Zealand’s economy and tourism have been expected over the years.

Amazon Studios plans to produce five seasons of the series, which would make it one of the most expensive television series ever made.
