I have to say that I'm excited about The Hobbit coming to cinemas over two years. December 14 2012 and 2013. While I hate having a 1 year intermission, I'm sure it'll be worth it.
It's also worth noting that The Hobbit will come out in 3d. Anyway, here are some videos about The Hobbit... and to imagine, the studios almost stuffed it all up. I heard that disputes almost meant it didn't happen. I'm glad it all got sorted out.
The first is the advert for The Hobbit. It looks wonderful... I so want to see it now!
The next videos are the behind the scenes blogs.
(The system only lets me post 1 video per post. I'll try to add the behind the scenes - 6 of them in replies).
