Peter Jackson has thankfully released a new Production Blog from the final days of Post-Production to the first chapter of his highly anticipated prequel, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." In this latest behind-the-scenes featurette, Jackson introduces his hard-at-work production team putting the final touches of Visual Effects, Actor Voice-Overs, Sound Effects, and The Musical Score in order to finish the film by the World Premiere on November 28th in Wellington, New Zealand.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" is expected to open in US theaters on December 14th.

synopsis:
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
