Director Peter Jackson had to make the unfortunate announcement that 'The Hobbit' would not be making an appearance at this year's Comic Con (click here for our full coverage of Comic Con 2011), but he also found a great way to make it up to us:
Good news and bad news today. Bad news is that we won't be doing any Hobbit presentation at Comic Con in San Diego this year. New Line and Warner Bros were very happy to support a presentation, but I declined, simply because I felt it was too early. There's so much more of the films still to shoot. I just wanted to get that out there, because I've seen various references to the possibility of something Hobbity at Comic Con. Hate to disappoint anyone. But something tells me we will be there in force next year.
Now for the good news...
We've just finished a new video blog, covering a little more of the first block of shooting. So please enjoy this—at least you don't have to travel to San Diego to see it!
'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' arrives in theaters on December 14th, 2012.
