From San Diego to Middle-earth

There were no Hobbit panels at the San Diego Comic Con, but the Weta Workshop was there and also an incredible life-sized model of Bag End.

After Evangeline Lilly, Manu Bennett also visited the Weta booth to pose with the statue of Azog, the character played by Bennett in The Hobbit.

Meanwhile in Middle-earth…

The finish line is in sight. So proud of so many people on this job who have put in the hard yards, and stepped up to make these films into something, that believe,is really special. It has been an honour…..

The finish Line is in sight. There will be tears. It is hard to describe how this experience has been. The body knows though, i feel the years today. Uncountable Ocs have felt the wrath. Last days in middle Earth . I have been so very fortunate.xxjedi
