The eleventh production video for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy has been released, and here we look at mostly the re shoots needed for the second film in what will now be a trilogy. We also get a hilarious moment where we see the Dwarves preparing for the Battle of the Five Armies, which will appear in the final film. Sadly though, the video begins with Jackson announcing that The Hobbit will not be able to attend this years Comic-Con in San Diego.
The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventures of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is a production of New Line Cinema and MGM, with New Line managing production. Warner Bros Pictures is handling worldwide theatrical distribution, with select international territories as well as all international television distribution being handled by MGM.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens nationwide across the UK on 13th December 2013.
