Billy Connolly reveals date of ‘The Hobbit’ wrap party

June 14, 2012 at 1:41 pm by frenz  - 

Billy Connolly returned to New Zealand today after a brief tour to promote the animated movie “Brave,” which was three years in the making. He was glad to be back to complete his role as Dain Ironfoot.

“I have a war to fight. Elves to kill. Orcs to maim,” he says.

And he has really enjoyed working with Peter Jackson, who obviously sets a high standard.

“He knows what he wants and he stays on the case until he gets it. It’s highly technical and we do a lot of takes. It’s not like normal movies where you just have to get your words right and avoid the furniture.”

But Billy isn’t sure how long he will be in New Zealand although he hasn’t done much sightseeing yet and revealed he has an invitation to “The Hobbit” wrap party on July 7th. So only a little while longer for Billy to be a dwarf warrior. Pickups are expected to take place after the official wrap, so some filming will go on after the July 7 party.
