The video has been created in conjunction with the Academy Award-winning Weta Workshop (The Lord of The Rings films) and features appearances from Jackson, as well as the unforgettable character, Gollum, and descendants of J.R.R. Tolkien, author of the timeless masterpiece The Hobbit on which the trilogy is based.
