The Return of the King: Peter Jackson's Hobbit Video Blog

Usually, I'm not a fan of those pre-release Behind the Scenes video blogs. When I go into a movie, I like to see it fresh. I don't even like trailers that give away too much of the movie. What's the point of investing $10 if I already know the story and heard the major laugh lines? (Here comes the exception...)

BUT, I did cave and watch Peter Jackson's video blog from the first day of shooting The Hobbit. I am so freakin' excited about this movie that I couldn't wait two years to get a sneak peek of it. Luckily, Jackson was good about giving fans a sneak peek without revealing too much.

Jackson was an adorable narrator as he showed fans the costume design process, blocking one of the scenes, and a couple of the sets, some from The Lord of the Rings series and some new to The Hobbit. It also featured an opening day ceremony with speeches by Martin Freeman (Bilbo), Andy Serkis (Gollum), and Jackson.

This video has gotten me so pumped for the movie! Grrr why must I wait so long, Peter Jackson!??!

Video is below. You can also check it out on Jackson's Facebook page.
