In December 2002  the second of the "Lord of The Rings" films based on the J.R.R. Tolkien books was released world wide. This movie called "The Two Towers" was filmed entirely in New Zealand by the New Zealand director Peter Jackson.

On the 4th of December 2002 New Zealand Post  issued a series of postage stamps with designs derived from scenes from the movie. The issue consists of 6 basic stamp designs but each design comes in both gummed and self-adhesive versions which differ considerably. The gummed versions also come in individual souvenir sheets.
