Finally we can read a nice message from William Kircher on his Facebook page:

Well… started back into filming pick-ups on The Hobbit last week. Great fun… just like we never stopped! It is very special getting back with all the team… in fact it is like we never stopped filming! Last week we worked with the stunt team. My stunt double Scottie has choreographed some great fight beats for Bifur so we worked on shaping these up… also did a lot of weapons training, rolling etc. I was a bit sore for the next couple of days… but well worth it! In my trailer right now waiting to get called to set. Watch out… here comes the Biff! Cheers

Well, it seems that all the cast is excited to be back on The Hobbit set. We just have to wait the next video blog from Peter Jackson!
