Quint, that lucky chap from Ain’t It Cool News who we are all very jealous of, has posted his final report from the Hobbiton set of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again. As usual, a spoiler warning does apply.
The report is full of great insider information and I particularly liked this snippet: “In true movie magic form we ended our second to last day with a big shot of Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins hauling ass out of Hobbiton, chasing down the dwarves, and began our final day with Mr Baggins returning to The Shire as his grand adventure comes to a close.”
Sorry if that news of Bilbo returning to The Shire is a surprise but, like Quint said, that shouldn’t be a shocker if you watched The Lord of the Rings films or, of course, read the books.
In his report Quint also included a photograph of the next location. My guess is that it will be used as Mirkwood – what do you think?
