    It's been a couple months since we last had a thread on this, so I figured rather than resurrect one of those, we could start up a new thread for all news, pics, and other related miscellany until the first film's release, because...

    Filming has begun on 'The Hobbit.'

    Finally! For a while it seemed like this project would never get off the ground, and now cameras are rolling. Only another twenty-one months or so until release day! :lol:

    I should re-read the book sometime before this comes out. I barely remember the story at all.

    Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was Peter Jackson's hobbit-hole, and that means 3D cameras were everywhere ...

    I hope that's supposed to be "Rhyming Competition" and not the other option it looks like :guffaw:

    I'm getting excited this is starting to come together finally.

  9. just saw the photos.

    ...there are some people who look better large/fat/chubby... Peter Jackson's definately one of them (john goodman is another).

    [Sindatur rests easy, letting go the thoughts of Frog legs]

    Original post says 21 months away from release, so, it seems, for now, we expect it to be a Christmas 2012 release

    The current plan is for part one to be released around Christmas 2012, with part two to follow in Christmas 2013.

    Seeing those pics of PJ in Bag End made me all giddy. I'm incredibly excited that these movies are finally in production, after years of legal issues and other conflicts holding it back. It's too bad Guillermo del Toro couldn't stick around to direct, but I think Jackson's going to do a great job.

    This photo comparison of PJ was posted on TheOneRing.Net. What a change in ten years! :eek:

    Was he diagnosed with diabetes or something? Granted a decade is a long time but that's some pretty drastic weight loss. Either way, good for him.

    I don't believe so. He lost a lot of weight between the releases of ROTK and King Kong.

    I'm surprised he didn't become one with the couch when he was editing the original trilogy. He looks great now, though.

    The image was already linked above, but I just loved Topless Robot's story on this:
