Peter Jackson took to his Facebook page to talk about some additional shooting for his The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and gave us this final production video blog. “It's been awhile since our last video blog. As we approach release, we want to show you a bit more of what we've been shooting,” Jackson said with the post. “Hope you enjoy and we will see you in theaters on December 13.”
Jackson’s last video blog comes on the heels of that three-minute The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug sneak peek that must have fans of the J.R.R. Tolkien series counting down the days until that mid-December release date.
The reshoots chronicled in the video blog above feature comments by Orlando Bloom as Legolas and Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel, as well as the man himself, filmmaker Jackson. They chronicle the last of the filming sequences for not only The Desolation of Smaug, but also the final chapter in The Hobbit trilogy, There and Back Again.
