New Zealand gets World Hobbit premiere

October 27, 2011 at 8:32 pm by maegwen  - 

It’s official! Peter Jackson made the announcement today from the Hobbiton set: Wellington will host the world premiere of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in late November 2012. If you’re lucky enough to have your own dragon hoard, it’s time to start booking that dream vacation!  [Video: PJ and NZ Prime Minister John Key]

More good news: It was also announced that Hobbiton, on the outskirts of Matamata, will remain as a permanent visitor attraction after filming is completed.

Three News NZ also has a comprehensive write-up of the press conference by Daniel Rutledge for those who prefer to read these things. [News Story: Hobbit to premiere in New Zealand]
