Ahead of the UK premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey next Wednesday, Air New Zealand has released this exclusive video in which director Sir Peter Jackson and cast members tell how New Zealand was transformed into Middle-Earth.
Adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel The Hobbit, the film kicks off a new cinema trilogy from director Sir Peter Jackson, New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM).
Air New Zealand, the official airline of Middle-earth, has also been giving passengers The Hobbit experience as soon as they step onboard with its latest safety video, which stars Jackson, actor Dean O’Gorman, great grandson of J.R.R, Royd Tolkien and Gollum himself.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released in cinemas in the UK on 13 December.
