Behind the scenes 'Hobbit' footage!

Fans are clamoring to get as much info and glimpses into the the highly-anticipated Peter Jackson film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, opening Dec. 14.

But, as luck would have it, Warner Bros doesn't want you to have to wait a whole week before getting a taste of the Shire, and have released 20 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage and six clips.

According to, "the footage is loaded with some awesome stuff including Peter Jackson directing Andy Serkis as Gollum with Martin Freeman, all the dwarves with Bilbo in Bag End, Elijah Wood and Ian Holm in Bag End, Jackson directing Ian McKellen as Gandalf as well as Jackson directing Christopher Lee!"

This is some really cool stuff for LOTR fans.

If you want to avoid spoilers, don’t watch! (you’re going to watch, aren’t you?)

What are you most excited about seeing in the film? Can Dec. 14 get here fast enough?
