Entertainment Weekly has brand new exclusive photos from the production of The Hobbit, currently filming in New Zealand.
Although the release of the first part is still a while away (December 14, 2012), here's a bit of a consolation in the form of images.
We get treated to a first look at Ian McKellan reprising his role as Gandalf and Martin Freeman in his starring role as Bilbo Baggins.
The magazine also has exclusive commentary from the director about the photos he released. Check out the link above for those comments.
The Hobbit, based on the famous fantasy adventure by J.R.R. Tolkien, has a shooting schedule of 254 days, which is almost as long as all three Lord of the Rings films.
Check out the photos below and be sure to keep with Movie Fanatic for all your Hobbit updates.
