The Hobbit Video, From the Set!


I am SUCH a huge Lord of the Rings fan.  I can not tell you how many times I've watched these movies.  Yes, I've read the books, too, but it's the movies that have me completely captivated.  So when I heard that they had decided to make The Hobbit, I was ecstatic, but a little worried.  Will it be as good?  Well, they've started filming, and have decided to share bits and pieces of "behind the scenes" action.  This is their first vlog:




Doesn't this just make you want to cry?  I'm in AWE of the amount of people, work, clothing, make-up, planning, thought, and energy that has to go into this EPIC film.  I was so excited to see Gandalf and Smeagol!!  And he said there are going to be "new bits" of Rivendell that we get to see!!  I can't wait!!  Rivendell was probably my favorite setting in the movie.  It was just so gorgeous. 

I'm so sad we have to wait so long for the movie to come out, but thrilled that they're making it at all!

  3. Oh my goodness, that did make me want to cry! I can't believe it's finally started. The Lord of the Rings was so epic--probably my favorite movie series of all time. I remember seeing the first one when I was 8 years old and falling irrevocably in love with the whole thing. I can't wait to see what this incredible team does with The Hobbit!

  6. I can't wait!!!! The Hobbit was the only book I read of the series before the Fellowship came out. I had tried to read the fellowship after I had seen the movie, but I had issues. Now I can't wait to be back in the Sire

  11. Thank you for posting this! It was SO great. I think The Hobbit will always be my favorite because it was the first Tolkien story I read and fell in love with when I was a child. And I always loved the cartoon version of it too. This is going to be an excellent movie and I'm so glad that Peter Jackson is at the helm again. Maybe he has another OSCAR in his future. =O)

  13. Dude, I like ligit almost cried when they started playing "May It Be" at the end. LotR was the first book I read that really captivated me, so it will always have a special place in my heart. And the movies did such an amazing job of capturing their essence. I can't WAIT to see "The Hobbit" on the big screen. I just wish it would come sooner!!!
