Just a few highlights from the past weeks:

Wellington Town Hall “off-limits” as NZSO records for The Hobbit

Analysing the role of The Necromancer in The Hobbit

Benedict Cumberbatch to be honoured with Britannia award
- Congratulations Benedict! This is well-earned! :D

Peter Jackson receives New Zealand’s highest honour - And congratulations to PJ too!

Researching THE FRODO FRANCHISE: Part 5, Watching Peter Jackson Direct - Links to parts 1-4 of Kristin Thompson's series of entries about the research for her book are at the start of this entry. If you haven't read the book, it's well worth getting!

Loosely related:

Are the studios trying to kill Blu-Ray? (The answer is certainly a "YES" if you look at the Star Trek Into Darkness release - commentary only with the iTunes version WTF???!!!)

Someone made a suggestion for a Sherlock Lego set - click the "Support" button if you want to see it realized! :D

and Peter Jackson is posting about it throughout the day on his Facebook Page. Head on over if you're curious!

These are not news by any stretch of the imagination - just want to put these links here for completion's sake.

No Wellington premiere for Desolation of Smaug - a slight updated on that are in the following article:

Hobbit news in brief: new production video soon, trailer reactions and premiere update

The first The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug trailer is now up at the Official website, of course, and you can find an analysis by TORn staff here and, more in detail, here.

NZSO hits high note with Hobbit sequel
An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition release date?

And here are some of Peter Jackson's Facebook updates:

Sir Ian's last shot, Orlando's last day, including a little video, Production DIary #11, Martin's last day, and a picture of Smaug admiring Bilbo's feet!

And this last one isn't Hobbit related, but might be of interest anyway: Peter Jackson talks to Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost about World's End
ourdramaqueen: (the hobbit smaug eye opening)
So Hobbit pick-ups have begun (while Sherlock is taking a break before filming episode three of the third series), and PJ has announced that a) these would be their "last ever Tolkien pick ups" *sniff* and b) a new video diary would follow soon.

I won't be able to post many Hobbit updates from here on out - partially because of the limits my family situation poses on my time, which certainly is not helped by LJ having been erratic in posting the RSS feed from TORn for quite a while now. If I come across something particularly interesting/important/squee-worthy, I'll still post about it here, so you won't be completely deprived. ;) The updates will just be far(ther) and few(er) between, and have less content.

Thanks to everyone who has been reading and dropping the occasional comment! :)

Hobbit TV spot #9; hello hint of Smaug!
- Of course you just see his silhouette, more or less!

Follow Tolkien’s footsteps through the Swiss Alps - Neat! It seems he made it to Chur, the capitol of the Swiss canton I grew up in. :) And I guess on one of my future visits home I'll have to take a trip to the village of Jenins to visit the Tolkien museum there, which will open next year (September 2013, I read somewhere)!

New Zealand peak could be dubbed: Mount Tolkien

Green Dragon opens in Hobbiton for thirsty fans, New Zealand - Sooooo excited to get to see it once I get to go back!!! :D And I hope we'll get to see the matching rings that the Hobbit cast got - that's so wonderful, that they bonded just like the LotR Fellowship and chose to commemorate it!

No Surprise Here: The Hobbit Makes Shortlist for Visual-Effects Oscar

There are other Hobbit links I need to post, but since it's time for me to go to bed, I'll just drop the latest one here - PJ's Hobbit Production Video #9! Lots of familiar faces again, which is just wonderful.

According to PJ, "It's due to be completed literally two days before the premiere. Hopefully. Hehehehe."
