  The Return of the King premiere was fab!

Return of the King premiere
Lord of the Rings fan Thomas lives in New Zealand.

Here he reports on the atmosphere at the Return of the King world premiere.

"After school on Monday I walked from school and met my Mum to join the crowds at the big screening of LOTR: Return of the King.

It felt to me like half of the country was there!

It was hot and as we walked through all the people on Courtenay Place I could see everyone was very excited.

Some were dressed up in costumes - including me.

I dressed up in a cape with a fur hood but it got too hot so I took it off!

Frodo plane flew low

We were near the red carpet.

As there was so many people there I could only see what was going on from the massive screens.

But I did manage to see the 747 plane that flew really low over us with Frodo painted on the side.

As a New Zealander I am very proud of director Peter Jackson - I think he did a brilliant job on the last film.

And it will be brilliant to see my favourite character, Legolas, in the film which I'll be going to see on Christmas Eve. I can't wait!"

Thomas, 12, Wellington, New Zealand
