The scenery descriptions of Tolkein may have been inspired by England or Scotland or Switzerland, but the scenery of South Island fitted like a glove for the LOTR films, and still does.
After all, whether in Switzerland or on South Island...an Alp is an Alp - and the Southern Alps got there first! :)
Let's hope all goes well for the Hobbit in NZ.
