Now that the Avengers, Spider-Man, and Batman have had their time in the box office, the attention of movie goers has shifted to the upcoming movie The Hobbit. This is the prequel to the famed Lord of the Rings series from J.R.R. Tolkien. That means no Frodo Baggins yet in the Shire! But we can still see familiar faces such as Gandalf, Legolas and the lead role of this movie Bilbo Baggins.

During the San Diego Comic-Con 2012, Austin Visuals 3D Animation Studio was anticipating the release of this behind the scenes video for the Hobbit. Director Peter Jackson visited SDCC to preview some special material for The Hobbit. The crew had to use 450 miles of Yak hair for the entire production! The Hobbit will be released in movie theaters this December with the sequel “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” in December 2013.
