Peter Jackson - Jackson Takes Fans Behind The Scenes Of The Hobbit

Subscribe to Peter Jackson alerts

Peter Jackson has given Lord Of The Rings fans a new glimpse of Middle Earth by releasing a behind-the-scenes video of work on The Hobbit.
The director is currently working on the two-part prequel in his native New Zealand and he has teased devotees by posting a 10-minute film on his page.
Jackson's footage gives fans a tour of the movie's costume departments and workshops, while staff are seen rehearsing epic fight sequences, testing out props and practising stunts.
Production finally began on the blockbuster in March (11) following months of delays due to financial issues, a dispute with actors unions and Jackson's hospitalisation for treatment of a perforated ulcer. The delays forced director Guillermo Del Toro to leave the project and Jackson stepped in to take his place.
The Hobbit films are due for release in 2012 and 2013.
