The final weeks of production on the last two parts of Peter Jackson's new Middle-earth trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again, has officially begun in New Zealand. Jackson himself posted the following message on his Facebook page along with a behind-the-scenes photo that shows him with Ian McKellen's Gandalf the Grey.
Back on set for our last Hobbit pick ups. Our last ever Tolkien pick ups, in fact. It's going to be an intense few weeks, but we're looking forward to shooting some powerful scenes with our great cast. Our next blog is coming soon!
