Director Peter Jackson has released the eleventh production video blog for his The Hobbit trilogy, the first since The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey debuted in theaters this past December. With a specific eye on the completion of this year's second installment The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Peter introduces this behind-the-scenes look at the sequel with the disappointing announcement that he is far too busy completing pick-up shots in New Zealand to attend Comic-Con 2013. As such, none of the actors will available either. But that doesn't mean new and exciting posters and videos won't debut during the four day event. Take a look at the latest happenings on the set of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug with the new Dwarvicise phenomenon, and watch the elves get some action as the cast and crew take you even deeper into this legendary saga.
