There and Back Again – First Glimpses into The Hobbit

Posted by on Apr 21, 2011

JRR is and always will be first in my heart and the father of my nerdity.  I just came upon this little truffle, and SWEET MOSES is this awesome!  Peter Jackson, who was finally brought on to direct the Hobbit films (to be done in 2 installments), has released the first video from inside the set/filming of The Hobbit Part 1.

We are shown mere tastes of what is to come in terms of sets, costumes, Sting, Middle Earth, goblin tunnels, the initial dwarf dinner at Bag End, new and returning cast members from LOTR, and Peter’s sick-awesome accent (which reminds me a lot of these guys – apologies, easily distracted).

Well, enough of my blathering, this video clearly stands on its own hairy feet.

  • As awesome as this video is, part of me is sad to see it, because it means that those sheep that had moved into the hobbit-holes are no longer there.
