The Hobbit Has Begun Rehearsals

Sir Ian McKellen has once again provide a new update on the status of The Hobbit production from his own unique perspective. The lastest is news the cast recently had its first researsal on the set of Bag End in the Stone STree Studios in Miramar, New Zealand. Below is the key snippet, his full entry can be found here.
...I was there too, in Hobbiton, with a semi-circle of dwarves and Bilbo, their reluctant host. I was at the cast’s first joint rehearsal where Peter Jackson, with Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, invited our comments on their script so far. This is as close to bliss as an actor can get. Facing three Oscar-winning screenplay writers who genuinely want us actors to contribute. AND there were piles of snacks on the coffee tables: fresh fruit, NZ cheese, Minties.
