Peter Jackson - The Hobbit - Comic-Con

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Comic-Con PosterPeter Jackson has dropped another treat for fans via his Facebook page, letting us in on the team’s trip to San Diego Comic-Con this month. It was one of the last major appearances before The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released in December.

Jackson gave this message:

I know that not everybody gets to Comic Con, so I thought I’d bring a little bit of Comic Con to you! Here’s a bit of what I saw in San Diego, and what those in Hall H got to see of The Hobbit! This is THE HOBBIT Production Diary #8, covering Comic Con and the final days of principal photography on the film.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. 

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released on 26 December 2012 in Australia from Roadshow. The film will debut in the US on 14 December 2012.
