Peter-Jackson-Doctor-Who As we speculated might be the case just the other day, the next trailer for The Hobbit — and the first for The Battle of the Five Armies — is going to be teaser length.

Peter Jackson just posted an update on his Facebook a few minutes ago, confirming the news and letting us all know that the teaser is in the hands of Warner Bros. marketing.

Many of you asked about the Hobbit Trailer.

So, yes — there will be a Hobbit Trailer. But like the previous two years, it’s not going to be released until around Oct. The complex VFX work required to produce the battle shots we’re all wanting to see are simply not far enough along yet.

However… yesterday I finished work on a Teaser Trailer and that has just been delivered to Warner Bros. So no doubt this Teaser Trailer will be making it’s way into the world sometime soon…
