Gollum: How We Made Movie Magic is a behind-the-scenes book by Andy Serkis, who performed the challenging role of Gollum in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings films. It was written in 2003, the year the trilogy was finished, and published by HarperCollins.

The book examines the unprecedented use of performance-capture animation required for Serkis' portrayal of Gollum in The Two Towers and The Return of the King, with commentary by many animators and designers of Weta Digital who were involved, such as Bay Raitt and Adam Valdez.

The efforts of animating Gollum are also examined in the appendices to The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Special Extended Edition, "Part Three: The Journey Continues".
