Peter Jackson has uploaded a ninth video blog for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey onto his Facebook page which follows the post-production team as they get the film ready for it’s impending release. We see the editing bay, how sound recording works, and are shown director of photography Andrew Lesnie putting final touches to scenes in Hobbiton. There’s also a section featuring Howard Shore recording to score in London.
The Hobbit follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), 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 (Ian McKellen), Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild (Richard Armitage). Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens December 14, 2012, followed by The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug December 2013 and The Hobbit: There and Back Again July 2014.
