It’s a sad, sad day for those who were hoping to see some footage or the cast and director at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but unfortunately, not everything is premiered there, much to the delight of those not able to attend.
Right off the bat in this latest The Hobbit production video blog, Peter Jackson made the announcement that he, nor anyone else, will be able to go to Comic-Con this year and present any exclusive footage for attendees. This is unfortunate indeed, but it seems that Peter does have good reason to not be able to show anything, as they are still hard at work in New Zealand working on pick-ups, and he just won’t have the time to edit an exclusive video, fly all the way out to San Diego, stay for a day, and fly all the way back to New Zealand. Because of all the work needed to get done in time for the release of the 2nd movie, I can see why it is with a heavy heart that he can’t give us this.
With that said, hopefully, he’ll be able to give us something for 2014’s Comic-Con.
Now, watch the video below to whet your appetite, which shows you the return of certain well-known actors for their last time on the set, talk of the Battle of the Five Armies, Dwarvicise (you have to watch), Radagast poo, and Orlando Bloom on fake-horse-riding (you really have to watch).
