The Hobbit Not Coming to SDCC 2011

In news that comes to little surprise, Peter Jackson has confirmed that The Hobbit will not be present at the San Diego Comic-Con that is starting today. The con is a way to get people excited about upcoming movies, television shows and comics. Something The Hobbit doesn't really need but couldn't hurt to have. However, the production is currently filming in both the United Kingdom and New Zealand with the first film 18 months away from release. I am sure next year will have something substantial planned to make up the difference.
Good news and bad news today. Bad news is that we won't be doing any Hobbit presentation at Comic Con in San Diego this year. New Line and Warner Bros were very happy to support a presentation, but I declined, simply because I felt it was too early. There's so much more of the films still to shoot. I just wanted to get that out there, because I've seen various references to the possibility of something Hobbity at Comic Con. Hate to disappoint anyone. But something tells me we will be there in force next year.

Now for the good news...

We've just finished a new video blog, covering a little more of the first block of shooting. So please enjoy this—at least you don't have to travel to San Deigo to see it!

I've been on the go since wrapping the first shooting block, but I'm about to settle down and get into the much delayed 20 Questions. I've a few half-written and will get those done very, very soon! I promise!
