Peter Jackson has released a really fun third production blog for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. He talks with Andy Serkis about some of the fun and games they had while shooting, it also shows off some footage from the set of the film. Jackson also announced that he will not be bringing The Hobbit to Comic-Con this year, and released a statement on the matter which I've placed below the video.
Here's what Jackson had to say on his Facebook page:
Good news and bad news today. Bad news is that we won't be doing any Hobbit presentation at Comic Con in San Diego this year. New Line and Warner Bros were very happy to support a presentation, but I declined, simply because I felt it was too early. There's so much more of the films still to shoot. I just wanted to get that out there, because I've seen various references to the possibility of something Hobbity at Comic Con. Hate to disappoint anyone. But something tells me we will be there in force next year.
Now for the good news...
We've just finished a new video blog, covering a little more of the first block of shooting. So please enjoy this—at least you don't have to travel to San Deigo to see it!
I've been on the go since wrapping the first shooting block, but I'm about to settle down and get into the much delayed 20 Questions. I've a few half-written and will get those done very, very soon! I promise!
