    using i broke down uncontrollably sobbing tears of joy when we got to abbey road i fainted… for obvious… reasons… I AM SOOOO STOKED

  2. That was incredible, I can’t wait to see the film! The whole hobbit team rocks!!!! Keep up the great work.

  13. Thank you so much!

  14. James Cameron says:

    oh boy! oh boy! oh boy!
    Man I can’t wait to see this!!

  15. Anyone catch what editing software they were using? It kinds looked like Avid, but then maybe not.

    • Since they filmed with Reds at 5k I’m almost certain it’s Avid MC due to the features with Gen lock and other various features. But don’t quote me on that could be wrong.

  16. Dwarf-Obsessed says:


    THIS WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!
    I mean… A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!!!! I have been sobbing for what… half-an-hour now?? (Probably the INCREDIBLE shots of my beautiful Thorin Oakenshield… <3 <3 <3)

    Was that a flash-back I saw in there???!!! A Thorin flash-back, and I think it was Erebor, and there was another Dwarf with him… WHO WAS THAT!!!!!??? Too old-looking for Frerin… WAY too old-looking for Balin… Thrain and Thror weren't outside… Hmmmmm…
    *strokes imaginary beard for emphasis*

  17. I love the intentional invocation of the Blatant Lies trope at the end. Made me smile and if I get any more stoked for this, I’m going to combust into a fireball large enough to see from space.

  18. The long-awaited!!!

    It’s wonderful!!

    I cannot wait the movie!!

  19. Fantastic! If I only could be pat of your team….

  20. when are they going to mae the tenth production vido

  21. More than anything like so many people I wish I was able to be involved in the hobbit in some way. It was the first book ever read to me, or the earliest one I can remember. My father read it to me at 3, so I have distinct memories of sitting out in the garden on his lap as he read it, singing the songs and doing the different voices. He read it to be again at 5 when I was old enough to understand the plot more.

    I loved the story for a long time, but never knew it had a sequel in the LOTR till my father took me to the movies one night in another town, (I live out in the country) and I was reintroduced into the world of the Hobbit, only it was so much bigger and better than I ever could have imagined.

    And when I found out the Hobbit was to be made I was incredibly excited. Martin is exactly as I imagined Bilbo to be. So many characters that I was hoping would be included are and I am thrilled. I only wish, even though I live in australia that I could be involved, even in a small way. Just to say, there, I was involved in something I will never forget, in a story that has resided in my heart for 20 long years.

    I have already dressed as Bilbo for a book store event. My father, excited for me to be a hobbit carved be a staff and later a pipe. Alas my ears and feet are nothing compared to the movies. But I am small, so no one notices.

    I look forward to the movie, though I can’t see it till next year sadly. But I know it will not disappoint.

    Thank you.


  22. We have YOUR advance screening passes to Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT at!

  23. Radagast’s staff looks striking familiar to an old friends. 0_0

  24. Goblins head came off…best part of the video.

  25. These video blogs are the most entertaining, behind the scenes production, I’ve ever seen. I watch them from start to finish and enjoy every bit. It’s such an eye opener on what goes into making a film. People sit for 1.5-3 hours in a theatre and walk away with some kind of evaluation on what they’ve just seen but do they really understand how much work is involved in creating that bit of entertainment? I would think not.

    I will watch a movie with much greater appreciation because of these video blogs.

  26. I can’t wait for the movie, but my god that’s a lot of buttons

  27. WHEN WILL THEY RATE THE MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    From all the way over here in Rome, Georgia, USA, all the best to you on your Hobbit series. Lord of the Rings was fantastic, so I’m confident you’ll knock this one out of the park, too.

    Makes me wonder, now that Disney bought up Star Wars and Harry Potter has come to a close, I wonder what your next trilogy project might be. The vampire / werewolf schtick seems to be waning. I think it may be time for some new characters to define our millineal generation. I’ve got a few that I think will look amazing on the big screen and by the time 2014 rolls around I should have the trilogy complete. It’s amazing what can come out of those bedtime stories to my boys….

    Hmmm… Whatcha doin in 2014? Let me know.

  29. I had no idea that making a film is such incredible thing! Thank You so much for all videos posted on this blog. Now one of my dreams is to work on a project like that. I’m waiting for the premiere!

    Thank you so much

  30. Hey there! Any idea where can I enjoy the best of 48FPS of ‘Hobbit’ in Delhi/NCR (India)? Don’t think there is an IMAX in here. Been asking everywhere, as I want to experience Peter’s magic to the hilt.

  31. The censorship here reminds me of stalinist era. My post wasn’t that bad! Positive criticism is benefitial for every author, be it writers, musicians or directors for that matter.

    I’m utterly Disappointed in you, hobbitblog.

  32. The sound from Abbey Roads sounds great! It will be great soundtrack!

  33. Thank to all this vids about how work cinema. I’ve just seen it yesterday in France, and there is no word to tell this… (great is to few).

  34. too incredible thinking in movie…no idea

    The most epic movie ever: The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, end now The Hobbit:An Unexpected Journey, Hobbit:The Desolation of Smaug (Dec. 2013) and last Hobbit:There and Back Again (Dec. 2014). It would be nice if I could see all them shut’s in IMAX.
