The Hobbit Video Blog

It's almost time. Years in the making, a decade in the waiting, now it's just a few more weeks away. Peter Jackson is ready to take us back to Middle Earth for the story of Bilbo in The Hobbit, kicking off his trilogy this December with An Unexpected Journey. We've been following the numerous wonderful 10-min video blogs Jackson has been making along the way, with the "Last Days" (#8) vlog the most recent. But PJ has unveiled one more, a look at the very final days, the last few minutes and hours of post-production (editing, effects) to have the film ready two days before its premiere (on Nov. 28th in New Zealand). It's as exciting, impressive and awe-inspiring as every other video blog he's made. You don't want to miss this one!

Here's the ninth video blog for The Hobbit titled "Post-Production", or head to Facebook to see in HD:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, 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 films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of 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 Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 14th.

    interesting - this does a good job showing (in a small way) just how much effort it takes to make a big blockbuster movie.
  • David Banner
    These video-blogs are just fantastic, been looking forward to these since the first was released for The Hobbit. Gahhh...Des 12th so far away..... :)
  • I've watched all of the DVD/Bluray extras for LOTR as much as I've watched the films themselves. Look forward to doing the same for The Hobbit.
  • This was fantastic.
  • This was one of my favourites from these, the work behind the scenes is incredible. Great to see some the cogs in that giant machine and how it moves along without falling apart.

    I was hoping for one last new look at the Glamdring sword before I see the movie.
