    I may not have this quite right, but I think LotR also set up the WETA video studio, which also worked on Avatar more recently. I d consider their work there

      Well, look at what "Lord of the Rings" did by Great Britain and the
      Commonwealth. It made a googleplex of money; it cleaned up at the
      Oscars; and it sent people scurrying all over New Zealand looking at
      LotR sites, thereby increasing tourism.

      Not bad, I'd say.

      There is also Sir Ian Holm (Bilbo) and Tolkien was given an OBE back in the 70s (unfortunately someone stole it from his rooms). Maybe the Queen is a F/SF
