Peter Jackson on The Hobbit Set

There and Back Again… Peter Jackson's Tale! Oh is it great to see Jackson back in Middle Earth again. With filming on the epic two-part adaptation of The Hobbit underway down in New Zealand, two new photos of Jackson himself on The Hobbit set, specifically inside of Bilbo's house in Hobbiton, have been revealed on his Facebook (via SlashFilm). Combined with that "first photo" of the cast not in costume, these are the only photos we've seen and while they are just "behind-the-scenes", they're still so great to see! Warner Bros has also announced the start of production and an official blog has also launched. Check out the photos below!

Peter Jackson - The Hobbit

Peter Jackson - The Hobbit

In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit… The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson in two separate parts, is set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The Hobbit films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, will be shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest camera and stereo technology. The Hobbit follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The first part of The Hobbit hits theaters December 2012.

He's spoofing the classic movie In Like Flint, but using the last name of Kevin Flynn... the main character from Tron.

Wonder if Jackson's gonna go barefoot again during filming?

Anonymous on Mar 21, 2011


Y'know, I've been wondering that one myself. Prolly gonna be easier too after the weight loss. But it's going to make his cameos (if he has one) harder to spot. CURSE YOU JACKSON!

If he hadn't lost all the weight I would of thought it was pictures from the lord of the rings set.

Pleaaaase get rid of the 3D. I know I can always see it in 2D, but the big ass 3D sign thats going to be attached to this is going to make me sick. It's completely unnecessary.

The Lord of the Rings movies are racist. I feel sorry for the asian, black and etc. children all over the world who’ve watched the thousands of actors and extras in those movies and don’t see anyone who looks like them. I’M COMPLETELY AWARE THAT THE MOVIES TAKE PLACE IN A EUROPEAN WORLD IN THE BOOKS. BUT, in the movies everyone is talking about saving ALL OF MANKIND. NOT ALL OF EUROPE OR KNOWN EUROPE! AGAIN FOR THE IDIOTIC PEOPLE WHO WILL BLINDLY DEFEND THE MOVIES, “ALL OF MANKIND ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FIGHTING.” Yet, all we see are white people. That is a contradiction! Would it kill him to make at least one of the Elves any race except for white. Return of the King was a great movie, and it would probably be the #1 movie of all time had Peter Jackson not been a racist. Oh, and having a token black guy in King Kong doesn’t count. We will always have James Cameron who will represent all the races in his epic movies.

Lol based in holy shit what!?...wait no resist..the...troll agggghhh.

Tolkien wrote the books as sort of an English legend or fairytale, mixed with his experiences of fighting in World War 1. He acknowledged his own racism in his early works, infact he compared the Dwarfs to Jewish people in a letter to a German Magazine pre WW2. I don't think his attitude was particularly unique at the time either, racism was very common in British society. People forget that 60 years ago human beings had to drink from separate water fountains in some countries... I loved The Hobbit and LOTR as a kid, it was one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. I just think his books were written from a European standpoint that reflected the times that he lived in. After watching the documentaries on Tolkien and reading about him it's undeniable that there was a bias, so there isn't much point in arguing about it.

Crapola on Mar 22, 2011


seriously that's 2 new images

Avb on Mar 21, 2011


i don't see why this film was not the first one before the lord of the rings trilogy it makes no sense but im glad to see one of my childhood books come to life 😀

I like how its two pictures of Bilbo's house... which we've already seen. How about a sneak peak of Transformers 3 with some great pics of Shia Lebouf and Bumblebee!

David Perretta on Mar 21, 2011

john s on Mar 21, 2011

Voice of Reason on Mar 21, 2011


I think that's Steve Jobs without the glasses and with hair. pfft.

Voice of Treason on Mar 22, 2011


One thing that I haven't heard is whether he will still be directing the "Tintin" movie, now that he is directing "The Hobbit". I hope so!!!! I think he is one of the greatest directors of my generation.
