Peter Jackson Unveils A New Vlog For The Desolation Of Smaug: Behind The Scenes Footage And Dwarvicise


smaug bannerPeter Jackson released a new video blog for The Desolation of Smaug on his official Facebook page today. Before some great, and oftentimes hilarious, behind the scenes footage teasing the Battle of Five Armies and Laketown he made a little announcement regarding Comic-Con.

Jackson revealed that The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug would not have a presence at Comic-Con later this summer. The director said they are too busy filming pickups and couldn’t spare any actors to form a panel. There won’t be any footage shown either. Jackson said he is just too hard at work finishing things up and making it perfect to spend time cutting a sizzle reel and having it ready in time for the convention. Since neither he or anyone else can make it to the big event, we can probably expect a few more video blogs between now and when the movie premieres in December. Jackson did show off some fantastic stuff in the 10 minute feature though. You can watch the video below to see great things such as Laketown, Orland Bloom and Evangeline Lilly getting close, Sylvester McCoy getting poo put on him, and the Dwarves getting ready for battle with an intense workout. The Desolation of Smaug begins December 13th. Where you hoping Jackson and company would be at Comic-Con? What do you think of the behind the scenes look at the film?
