The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug: Peter Jackson on “Same Journey” as Dwarves

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Peter Jackson is back taking us to Middle Earth for his second chapter of his Hobbit journey, teased in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug trailer. We caught up with Jackson recently and up front he addressed the idea of doing something some J.R.R. Tolkien fans would see as sacrilege, creating a new character that was not in The Hobbit book. Evangeline Lilly is Tauriel and honestly, she is a great addition to a story that was first of all, lacking any female characters.
