Jackson on the Hobbit's Shire set.
We're going back to the Shire. If it's an option, it's time to start growing out your beard. Peter Jackson's staff have been posting vlogs from the set of the two Hobbit movies. See the most recent one below the jump, which shows several sets and the actors discussing the filming so far (Hat tip: Bleeding Cool). The official blog for the films is here, where you can see many more photos of the sets and actors in costume. Anticipation is building to see what Smaug will look like: on 16 June 2011, it was announced that Smaug will be voiced and interpreted by Benedict Cumberbatch, who played the Cadbury-styled chocolate mogul in the 2007 film version of Atonement. The Tolkien trust, founded by Tolkien's children, is here. All images and designs are copyright Warner Bros. Entertainment.
