Peter Jackson announces Hobbit premiere in New Zealand

Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit (part one) will be premiering in Wellington, New Zealand in late 2012. However, that’s not the only interesting tidbit of information in this brief news clip from Skynews in Australia. 

Hobbiton, one of the few major set pieces in The Lord of the Rings movies, is becoming a permanent fixture in the New Zealand country-side. Fans of the films might want to make the journey to the island nation to visit the Shire’s most famous village.

Take a look if you’re curious about the new Hobbit films or just like listening to Australian accents.
