Two Official Photos Revealed of 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!

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.
