The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug: Peter Jackson Production Video Diary

by at . Comments

The latest The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug trailer certainly wowed. Want to go inside the magic? Lucky for you, Peter Jackson has just released one of his behind-the-scenes production video diaries showing fans how he is bringing the J.R.R. Tolkien book The Hobbit to life in a new trilogy.

After the success of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, expectations are high for the December 13 release of the second chapter in Jackson’s new Middle Earth trilogy.

One of the bigger pieces of news from this new production video is Jackson announces, almost apologetically, that he and this second The Hobbit movie won’t be at Comic-Con this year. They are simply too busy in New Zealand putting the finishing touches on the film.

Not to worry folks, we will still have coverage aplenty from the annual San Diego pop culture convention!

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug picks up where the adventure left off in the first film and follows Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he continues his journey with his new BFF Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen dwarves as they try to reclaim their homeland that was taken by the evil dragon Smaug.

I will not die like this, clawing for life... If this is to end in fire, then we will all burn together!
