Director Peter Jackson is taking audience behind the scene of "The Hobbit" by posting a ten-minute video on his Facebook page. The video shares a glimpse of Bag End set, shows actors practicing to fight and ride horse, and features Andy Serkis who wears his Gollum make-up.
"The Hobbit" will center its story on Bilbo Baggins who joins a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets Gollum, the creature that will change his life forever.
Set in a fantasy world, the upcoming film has Martin Freeman taking the main role as Bilbo, and Richard Armitage playing Thorin. Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood and Orlando Bloom reprise their role as Gandalf the Grey, Frodo Baggins, and Legolas respectively. Fran Walsh, Guillermo del Toro, and Philippa Boyens team up to pen the script for the film which is due in December 2012.
Based on a novel by J. R. R. Tolkien, "The Hobbit" is split into two parts which are shot back-to-back. The second installment "The Hobbit 2" is expected to hit theaters in 2013.
