Hobbiton Nearing Completion

While the boycott from the .05% of New Zealand actors that somehow got the support of 99% of other non-New Zealand actors continues, pre-production continued on the location of Hobbiton. As the image from the Daily Mail shows, the location is actually pretty sizable in scope. Click here to view more images.
Bilbo has called in the builders as preparations for the latest JRR Tolkien blockbuster continues. Just weeks after sheep were spotted making the most of the old Lord Of The Rings' set, the New Zealand location has been revived for the two-part Hobbit prequel.

New Hobbit holes are being dug, while the old ones are being spruced up ready for the start of filming later this year. The set, which will portray the Hobbit village of Hobbiton, will remain as a permanent tourist attraction and theme park near the Waikato town of Matamata.
