Peter Jackson Releases Video Excerpt From The Hobbit Live Chat Event


legolasLast week Peter Jackson took part in a live video chat talking about all things Hobbit. Jackson, and most of the cast and crew, gave fans a look behind the scenes of not only The Hobbit, but also the upcoming Desolation of Smaug. Peter Jackson took to his official Facebook page earlier today to unveil a six minute excerpt from the chat as well as a tease that an edited version of the full event will be unveiled soon. The video gives us our first look at some of the sequel’s unfinished footage, Legolas, and concept art. Oh yeah, Stephen Colbert pops up to show how big of a Tolkein nerd he is.

Thanks to everyone who tuned into our Live Event last week. I’ve never done anything like that before, and I was pretty nervous. Hope it was ok.

If you saw it, it was a pretty accurate picture of what life is like at the moment. Jabez and I sit in that editing room all day, every day, editing the second Hobbit movie, and we actually start on the third next week! A lot of that movie was shot nearly a year ago, so I’m looking forward to seeing it come alive, shot by shot in the cutting room. It’s like assembling one of those complex 2000 piece jigsaw puzzles.

For us, this is really the being of 2013, so I look forward to posting a bunch more stuff as we work through the year.

I think that an edited version of the Live Event is being made available over at the official Hobbit site, and Warner Bros have kindly let me post a 6 min excerpt here, to give everyone who missed it a sense of what it was like.
