Casting in New Zealand during production has nine coordinators that search throughout the country for people with very specific descriptions to represent the different civilizations in the film. The team casts background players, doubles, stand-in, body doubles, hand doubles, stunt doubles, as well as principal roles. In some battle scenes there are up to 450 extras that need to be cast. More than 20,602 extras' man days were logged on the production.
