The Hobbit Trilogy Resumes Filming Monday

The One Ring is reporting that Peter Jackson. his motley crew and cast will resume filming for The Hobbit on May 20 in Wellington, New Zealand. Technically it is a "pick-up" as principle photography had already wrapped but that was before Jackson and Warner Bros decided to turn The Hobbit into a trilogy. As a result a whole more scenes are needed to fill out The Hobbit: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (out 12/13/13) and The Hobbit: There and Back Again (out 12/17/14). Based on rumors, extra listings in the country and actor references, it seems a lot of the filming will focus on the Battle of Five Armies which will basically be the final act of the last film. In the novel, Bilbo was knocked out early on and when the story picked back up it was over. Tolkien didn't really get into details on the battle as a whole but just certain key events. As a result Jackson will have an opportunity to let his imagination run wild.
