Thanks to CGI.
Lord of the Rings actually used significantly less CGI than one would expect. It was used for obvious stuff like the Eye of Sauron, Trolls, Ents, and various forms of magic. But they put a lot of work into perspective tricks to, for example, make the actors playing Hobbits appear Hobbit-sized without having to use any CGI.
