If you aren't already following The Hobbit Blog - the official production diary of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" - you should go ahead and begin immediately. You can start by watching the tear-inducing production video below, which The Hobbit Blog has recently posted, in which Peter Jackson lets those of us who, unfortunately, weren't able to attend Comic-Con this year in on all the action. I love hearing the actors and crew share about how close they've become in the process of creating this film, just as I loved hearing it while watching the special features for Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. It makes me wish Tolkien was fully aware of how many people he has brought together and affected through his work. Who knows? Maybe he gets to look down from where he lives now and is aware of it after all.
