Peter Jackson has just posted his first video blog from the set of The Hobbit on Facebook. It’s a really great 10-minute peek into the behind-the-scene work of the two-part movie which is set 60 years before Lord of the Rings and revolves around the journey of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) to the Lonely Mountains to reclaim a treasure guarded by the dragon, Smaug.
While most of the things shown on the video have already been seen in the LOTR trilogy, it’s still nice to get a sneak peek of the set, the cast and the behind-the-scene preparation and realize that this is actually happening after so many delays! The first part of The Hobbit will be released in December 2012.
