First footage of ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’

Colin Joliat Alcohol & Food Editor

Peter Jackson hosted a live event featuring Q&A from YouTube, and he’s published a 6 minute except online. It shows behind the scenes footage and concept art from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and even features superfan Stephen Colbert.

I was disappointed there wasn’t more footage from the next movie, but that’s what I get for not buying The Hobbit on Blu-ray or DVD. With it you get the access code to watch the full event. We’re lucky Warner Bros. even let him post this much, but I’m sure an enterprising fan could find a way to watch it without paying if he was so inclined.

An eagle-eyed commenter pointed out the Star Wars script at the 4:51 mark. Who knows if that’s an April Fools Joke, a sign of things to come, or just Peter Jackson f’ing with all of us.
