Sakai becomes sister city with The Shire

bilbo gandalf

(From Asahi Shimbun) Osaka Prefecture’s Sakai “signed” a sister city agreement earlier this month with The Shire, a fictional village inhabited by hobbits in the “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy and its prequel, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”

The films were directed by Peter Jackson and produced by Weta Digital Ltd., a digital visual effects company based in Wellington. The imaginary friendship stems from the fact that Sakai and the New Zealand capital have been sister cities since 1994.

Sakai officials approached distributor Warner Bros. with the proposal.

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” will open in Japanese theaters on Dec. 8.
