Though the titles of Peter Jackson’s upcoming Hobbit films were first leaked back in March, they got official over the weekend complete with release dates.
Look for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey to hit theaters on December 14th 2012 and The Hobbit: There and Back Again to follow on December 13th 2013.
If you want to keep up with the production, we strongly urge you to check out Peter Jackson’s Facebook page. It is quickly becoming a one-stop shop for everything related to production. From video blogs to the latest news. Most recently, Jackson announced that Orlando Bloom will return as Legolas (despite the fact that he doesn’t appear in the original story). He’s also started answering questions from fans.
