The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Following the first full trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the second part of Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic book, a longer glimpse behind the scenes of the film has just been revealed. A six-minute featurette focuses on the beautiful shooting locations in New Zealand that are being used for Middle-Earth. This doesn't seem completely specific to the second film with a look at the making of Hobbiton and more, but it's still a great featurette for fans of the series. Plus, there's something amusing about seeing the actors in full dwarf make-up and wardrobe hopping out of a helicopter.

The featurette for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, originally from Facebook:

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: The Desolation of Smaug lands in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 13th.

not sure why every site is picking this up at different times without reading the comments but once again, this featurette was an extra on the AUJ blu ray set and is not associated with DOS in any way. You'll notice all the locations in this piece correspond to the first movie so this has been out for a while now...

Yup. This video is either old, or it reused footage from an earlier featurette. Really confused why so many different sites are posting this vid.

I even moved to NZ once I visited, which was a trip instigated in the first place by the first trilogy. Great place indeed!
