Anyone who bought the Blu-ray version of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey got a special sneak peek at the next film in the trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug, via a live event on the internet. Now a condensed six minute version of that event is available online for anyone to watch; it features a Q&A with Peter Jackson, behind the scenes footage, and some cool cameos.
Check it out here:
The principal cast of There and Back Again will be back in addition to some new and familiar faces. More men, dwarves and elves will be appearing in the film, with the likes of Stephen Fry, Billy Connolly, Luke Evans and Lee Pace, who had a cameo in the first film’s prologue, joining the cast. Also coming back from the Lord of the Rings trilogy will be Orlando Bloom as Legolas.
The first trailer for the film is due to be released this summer with the actual film coming out on December 13th.
