Peter Jackson: 'The Hobbit' Starts Production - First Look!

Peter Jackson poses on the set of his upcoming film The Hobbit, which starts production on Monday (March 21) in New Zealand.

The Hobbit, the prequel to The Lord of the Rings series, follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug.

Martin Freeman stars as Bilbo with Cate Blanchett, Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood, and Andy Serkis reprising their roles from The Lord of the Rings.

    I can’t wait for this movie!
    I also can’t wait to get confirmation that Legolas will be in the film.
    Orlando stated that there were a few exciting things coming up for him, and I’m really hoping that The Hobbit is one of them!

    Can’t wait for The Hobbit! I hope PJ has the good sense to keep Orlando Bloom away from the films, he’s worthless.

    delphi-mike takes time away from stalking Miranda to insult Orlando when it isn’t even his thread.

    Your life must be so sad.
    But you sure do entertain us every time you post.
    Did Kate not have a thread today?
    I know how much you enjoy kissing her scrawny a$$.

    You don’t want Peter to include on of the best loved characters from the trilogy? The popular character who is most easily written into The Hobbit? The only non-canon character that even Hobbit purists have said that they will embrace? The biggest breakout star of LOTR? The highest grossing actor of the last decade?
    I’m glad that Peter is the expert here, and not some bitter old hater.
