The principle photography on the hobbit movies (parts one and two) wrapped up in New Zealand on the 6th of July, the 266 day shoot is not far of the time it took to film the lord of the rings which was three films! Now there’re into post production, the editing and special effects though on the hobbit blog Peter Jackson has said that they may return to do pick-up shots in 2013 for the second film, There And Back Again. The Hobbit Part 1 : An Unexpected Journey is scheduled to hit theatres on the 14th December this year.
