Hobbit Officially Enters Production
Well, it has been a long wait for Hobbit fans since the original announcement that JRR Tolkien’s novel would be put to the big screens to today, which marks the official first day of filming for The Hobbit movies. There have been earthquakes, health emergencies, a director loss, studio bankruptcies, production disputes, labor strikes, cast turmoil and more, however, The Hobbit has prevailed through them and is in production.
The battle to get this movie launched amazingly parallels the type of fight Tolkien’s novel depict. Indeed it has been a hard, long road, just as it was for Bilbo and the dwarves.
Now all Hobbit fans can sleep peacefully tonight knowing that there is a great and important work going on in New Zealand. Plans to release the first installment is still set to release in December of 2012. Let the magic begin.
