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!
