The Hobbit is an upcoming two-part film based on the novel of the same name by J. R. R. Tolkien. The film is in development for releases in December 2011 (Part 1) and December 2012 (Part 2) and will be directed by Guillermo del Toro, with Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, serving as executive producer and co-writer. Originally, both parts would have served as separate films. The first would have adapted The Hobbit and the second would have bridged the gap between this and The Lord of the Rings. It is the director's intention to split and expand the narrative of The Hobbit over two parts of a singular film.--courtesy of wikipedia

And now it really is here! These pictures are solid proof that the filming of The Hobbit is under way! I can't wait for this movie to come out! Finally, all of us fans of J.R.R.
