The Hobbit Video Blog

What better way to spend your Christmas weekend curled up by the fire, humming the Dwarven folk song from the teaser trailer, watching another 12-minute video blog about the adventures of Peter Jackson as he continues to film the two Hobbit movies down in New Zealand. The fifth video blog for The Hobbit has just debuted on Facebook (thanks to @iRobulous on the tip & headline suggestion) and it's as spectacular and exciting as you have come to expect. They continue to focus on the logistics location shooting (which is fascinating to see), there's glimpses of Elijah Wood and Quint from AICN as a Hobbit, and more. Enjoy!

Watch the fifth video blog for The Hobbit below, and head to his Facebook page to see it in HD:

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 technology. 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 on December 14, 2012.

So amazing. I can't wait to see all of this with my own eyes in February. PJ really is a class act, I couldn't be happier with all of the stuff he's been giving us over the past year.

I got to live in NZ for a few months. The country is amazing.

I wish more productions posted videos like this leading up to a release. Like Alex mentioned, it's fascinating.

Me too, I wish we'd see these for all kinds of movies. I understand someone like Chris Nolan wouldn't want to show this much, but this is an incredible experience to watch unfold as it's happening, and we don't have to wait 2 years to watch all this later on DVD. Brilliant.

I too do wish that more movies would do this. It's good strategy too! Man Peter Jackson is such a great man to share this!

That's great that they had the money and materials to re-do Hobbiton and make it permanent. Maybe some day us fans will see it for ourselves, if we have the money to go to New Zealand. 😀
