Last week, Peter Jackson hosted a Q&A you could only watch if you had purchased the ‘Unexpected Journey’ Blu-Ray and entered a code from the DVD package. In the Q&A, Jackson takes questions from fans, including Stephen Colbert and actor Billy Boyd and shows off some behind-the-scenes footage which features Lee Pace as Thranduil, Orlando Bloom as Legolas, Evangeline Lily as the elf archer Tauriel and Luke Evans as the human Bard the Bowman. The Hobbit director commented: “The great thing about the second [‘Hobbit’] movie — as it was with the ‘Two Towers’ actually — is that the stories start splitting up into multiple story lines and we can follow different characters as the story intensifies and the stakes go up”. One of those story lines, as you can tell from the footage, will be the introduction of the elves from Mirkwood.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” opens later this year on December 13th.
