Fans hungry for updates on The Hobbit, the upcoming prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, director and co-writer Peter Jackson has been made the production process as transparent as possible, having released three production video blogs so far on his Facebook page.
The latest video focuses on the 3-D aspect of the prequel, which will arrive in two-parts — 2012's An Unexpected Journey and 2013's There and Back Again. While this is certainly the most technically-focused blog that Jackson has released so far, there's also footage of Martin Freeman (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Office) as Bilbo Baggins, the role he takes over from Ian Holm, and Elijah Wood viewing playback footage in 3-D while dressed as Frodo. There's also footage of Hugo Weaving as Elrond, as well as Ian McKellen dressed as Gandalf with the entire company of dwarves. watch the video >> Posted 11.04.11 by Ryan
