‘The Hobbit’ production wraps as Peter Jackson offers new set photos and commentary

The last day of filming on The Hobbit series is Friday and director Peter Jackson wants to commemorate this with a treat to fans over on his Facebook page.

“Ever since starting these blogs, there’s been something I thought I’d like to try one day (as well as answering the other 19 questions I owe you!)—blogging throughout a shoot day in real time.”

The production team is filming scenes from the third and final movie, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, so this is a very early sneak peek at the December 17, 2014 release.  The next film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, opens on December 13, 2013. 

Jackson posted several photos and commentary.

10.30am. Had to race to A Stage to try and explain to Graham and Christian why they were shooting their Dwalin fight against green screen, and not our beautiful expensive set as planned. Graham started sharpening his axe, so I just told them to read my last Facebook posting and I fled.

We’ve shot 3 shots on K Stage so far this morning. 2 more to go, and we’re shifting to F Stage.

Hopefully before the lunch break! Could be a long night …

Big Richard, Medium Richard and Little Richard.

2.00pm. Just breaking for lunch, with the first shot on F Stage complete. A daunting number to go. I don’t want to think about it, but it’s probably 7 or 8 set-ups. Splinter Unit have made the move to K Stage and will start shooting after lunch.

I asked the various Thorins to pose just before they headed off to lunch. One of these is Richard Armitage, and two of them are not. It’s your guess … The one in the middle is a little psycho.
