‘Hobbit’ Vlog #8 unleashed — and it is kinda awesome

July 23, 2012 at 12:55 pm by MrCere  - 

Peter Jackson and company swooped into Comic-Con and unleashed some footage for the ravenous fans there but now he has unleashed Vlog #8 from his Facebook page full of spoilers, Comic-Con footage, John Howe, lots of actors saying hi and a little nostalgia from the crew. If you can stand a view of stone giants, Beorn’s house, Andy Serkis jamming on a sax and an absurd amount of “Hobbit” stuff, it is a must watch. The film hasn’t been released yet and already producer Michael Pellerin and his crew of behind-the-scenes people are making us nostalgic for it! And, sure sounded like Jackson reads TheOneRing. Find it on his Facebook page or watch it below:

    I can’t believe they’ve included them, I thought they would be the first things to go in the process of adapting the book into something filmable. I saw them as the Tom Bombadil of The Hobbit – great fun and marvellous creations but slightly random and out of keeping with the rest of the world. As far as I know there is no mention of them in any of Tolkien’s other works, and they seem like something that everyday audiences will find a little hard to accept.
    Still, I suppose that unlike Tom Bombadil they can easily be turned into a massive action sequence, so that’s how they managed to get into the film.
    It’s great to receive reassurance that the films will be sticking closely to Tolkien’s masterpiece, though I wonder how the average cinema-goer will react to the more whimsical elements of The Hobbit.
