    Courtesy of Empire Online; one of the biggest movie magazine in the world, we have two new image stills from the production of The Hobbit. Yes, I know you want some teaser of excitement for this movie, so I am going to feature those images in this post. Now, calm down boys!

    If you have not known, The Hobbit is translating into big screen adaptation next year despite experiencing several hiccups throughout the last few years. The trouble to get the production to kick start is largely due to the studio MGM's financial crisis, which is now largely solved. Thus, I am glad to report to you that the shooting is still on-going at the Kiwi land with Peter Jackson is directing once again. Now, here are those images which you can view after the jump:

    The photos above feature (if you still do not know and I will said it out) Sir Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey (first picture) and Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins (second picture). Anyway, thanks to Empire Online once again! If you are interested to read on their detailed interview with director Peter Jackson, make sure you get your copy of the latest Empire Online, due out this week.

    The Hobbit as we have known will be split into two-parts. The part one is now called "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" while part two is now called "The Hobbit: There and Back Again". The first part will be released on 14 December 2012 while the second part will be released a year later on 13 December 2013. The official synopsis that was provided in the press release is as follows:
    "Both films are set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. The adventure of “The Hobbit” follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug."

    Of course, The Hobbit will serve as the prequel to the popular Lord of the Rings trilogy and is itself based on another beloved J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy saga about the creatures and earthlings of the Middle Earth.
