As the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey looms ever closer, a new production video has hit giving us some insight into the production's nerve-wracking, hair-pulling last-minute rush to complete the film mere days before its initial release.
The video blogs posted by director, Peter Jackson have been satiating fans jonesing for some Shire action with a side of Lembas bread since the production of the film trilogy began in early 2011. While the film is set to hit the production's native country of New Zealand in just a few days on November 28, non-Kiwi fans still have a little while to go until the wide release on December 14. Thus, there's plenty of useful goodies for those who won't get to see the film for nearly three long weeks.
Until then, enjoy the latest entry into Peter Jackson's behind-the-scenes odyssey featuring a few new tidbits like footage of giant dwarf-eating trolls speaking with cockney accents, gratuitous goblin-ganking, and the fascinating fundamentals of digital beard mechanics.
