The Hobbit Starts Production: First Official Pictures from The Hobbit

The Hobbit has officially begun production, after an anxious half-decade of waiting that included issues with accounting, rights and pre-production finances. However, Lord of the Rings fans can now breathe a sigh of relief, as The Hobbit is finally beginning its journey toward the big screen. In order to build some more anticipation, Peter Jackson released two pictures of himself hanging on The Shire – check them out below. The picture to the right is a shot of the set of The Hobbit, which is located in scenic New Zealand.
