Last week Peter Jackson hosted a live-streaming event for anyone who purchased The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on DVD/Blu-ray in where he answered fans’ questions and shared footage from the second film, The Desolation of Smaug. Unfortunately, it’s not the entire event but a six minute clip has been released online and it contains a little bit of behind the scenes filming footage. It’s our first proper look at the elves in action, featuring Legolas (Orlando Bloom), his daddy, Thandruil (Lee Pace), and the new elf not found in Tolkien’s books, Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly). There’s also a pretty hilarious and extra nerdy question from Stephen Colbert, and an anecdote where Jackson may have caught The Colbert Report giving dirty mugs to their guests. Give it a watch,
Can’t wait for Jackson to start releasing those video blogs! The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug releases later this year on December 13th.
