Peter Jackson has released another great video blog for The Hobbit! This is the seventh video in the blog series, and it takes us on a tour of the studio where The Hobbit films are currently being shot in New Zealand, Stone Street Studios. The video shows a lot of the cast and crew in costume and in action. This is an entertaining video blog, and I suggest you watch it all the way to the end.
Warner Bros. also recently announced that the premiere of the highly-anticipated first film of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will take place on November 28th in the beautiful land of New Zealand. I would love to go to there.
"The Hobbit" follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released on December 14th, The Hobbit: There and Back Again will hit on December 13th, 2013.
