Bear and I just got finished watching the live streaming event with Peter Jackson (LOTR, The Hobbit) and are excited and looking forward to The Desolation of Smaug coming to theaters this December. Not going to give away any spoilers from the sneak peek (for Hobbit2), but if you've read The Hobbit, then you know some of the great scenes that will most likely make it into the next movie.
We bought and watched The Hobbit yesterday, just so we could get the special code to watch Peter Jackson's live event today. Yes, hubby is a major geek and he converted me. lol.
My favorite scene from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Hobbit movie 1) is when the dwarves are washing the dishes, singing and tossing plates and bowls willy-nilly and not a one broken. It's a fun, comedic scene, almost Disneyesque. It plays very lighthearted, just as the first movie in LOTR did the same. The further you go into the tale, the darker it becomes. A perfect progression to the heart of storycraft.
Now I can't wait for December! Thank you for doing the live event, Mr. Jackson. My guy and I enjoyed the behind the scenes look at all it takes to produce such an all-encompassing movie like The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
