One of the 23 movies we want at Comic-Con this year is The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. We thought we would get at least a trailer and at the most a visit by members of the cast as we knew that director Peter Jackson would be too busy putting the finishing touches on his final The Hobbit chapter, set to land in theaters December 17.
Jackson took to his Facebook page and updated the world that has been flooding him with questions as to when we can expect that first tease. And although he did not say it would be at Comic-Con, we certainly think it looks that way.
“Many of you asked about the Hobbit Trailer. So, yes - there will be a Hobbit Trailer. But like the previous two years, it’s not going to be released until around Oct. The complex VFX work required to produce the battle shots we’re all wanting to see are simply not far enough along yet,” Jackson stated.
“However … yesterday I finished work on a Teaser Trailer and that has just been delivered to Warner Bros. So no doubt this Teaser Trailer will be making its way into the world sometime soon.”
Soon, to us, equals Comic-Con!
