The Hobbit will be coming to San Diego for the International Comic-Con! There will be a Warner Bros panel that will most definitely include The Hobbit. As is usually the case, however, they have not announced yet (and may not do so at all) who is going to appear on the panel.
Warner Bros and Legendary Entertainment have announced plans to bring three of their highly anticipated projects to San Diego Comic-Con International’s Hall H on Saturday, July 14th.
Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim will make up that panel that is expected to occupy a three to four hour block on Saturday morning, July 14th. There’s no word yet which cast or crew members will be in attendance.
It’s no surprise that The Hobbit will be a major part of Comic-Con this year, and it will probably make a reappearance again next year, considering that Peter Jackson does love us at the Con. Updates and pictures of the panel will be posted that weekend, so follow us via Twitter for when that happens. The panel is sure to have a big, big crowd.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released in theaters on December 14, 2012. The second film, titled The Hobbit: There and Back Again, is slated for release the following year on December 13, 2013. Both movies are directed by Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and star Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Andy Serkis as Gollum, Elijah Wood as Frodo, plus Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Evangeline Lilly, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Stephen Hunter, Benedict Cumberbatch, Bret McKenzie, James Nesbitt, Luke Evans and others.
