New Hobbiton Photos Emerge! Seems Shooting Will Take Place Within Bag End!!

Got some recent Hobbiton photos for you guys! The original image is from Total Film and it is quite small so reading most of the text is next to impossible. However I blew the photos up so we can have a closer look - albeit blurred - at Hobbiton.

Click on the image to enlarge...

I can make out some of the text in the article: They talk about the budget of THE HOBBIT being gargantuan, about Martin Freeman playing Bilbo Baggins as well as going over the known cast that has been assembled to date. My suggestion? Buy the magazine when it comes out :-)

Clearly it looks like Jackson will be shooting INSIDE of Bag End and the location set is not merely frontage only as was the case with most of what was in the original Hobbiton. The construction site shows ample work being done inside Bilbo's home.

Pumped up? But of course you are. Who wouldn't want to visit this area of New Zealand on some sort of Middle-earth tourist trip? I hope they leave all this for others to enjoy after the production is complete, because most of it was taken down after LOTR.

More when I get it!
