Peter Jackson’s video blog on The Hobbit

Posted in Art & Culture tagged at 2:59 pm by potofcallaloo

Peter Jackson has released his first video blog from the set of The Hobbit.

In the ten minute video he gives a walkthrough of different aspects of the sets that were used in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy but doesn’t reveal any new scenes as he wishes to keep us sitting on the edges of our seats.

Filming for the movie which precludes the LOTR Trilogy has begun after several setbacks and part one is to be released in December.

The movie is based on the classic written by J.R.R Tolkien in 1937 and chronicles the adventures of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins and a team of dwarves as they set out to recover a stolen treasure guarded by feared dragon Smaug.

If you’re into fantasy and haven’t yet read the book, I strongly suggest that you do. Tolkien has built a prodigious world easily imagined with his highly descriptive writing style.

Reading the book has only made me more anxious to see how it will be represented on the big screen. It’s going to be BIG!

    “We can stick a fan up your robe for air conditioning”… to which Gandalf responds: “Promises, promises”… 😀 hehe.
