A select group of Hobbit fans will soon be able to see some exclusive first look footage from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug as they take part in a live Q&A with Director Peter Jackson and the cast from four different locations across the globe. The event, which celebrates the second of three releases based on the beloved Tolkien novel, will be taking place today on Monday 4th November at 10 p.m.-11.20 p.m. (UK time) and simultaneous times around the world. The event will also be streamed live online via the video below so even if you aren’t at the event in person, you can still share in the fun – though the extended footage will be edited.
In London, Edith Bowman will be joined by Lee Pace, Luke Evans and the legendary man behind Gollum, Andy Serkis. In New York, Richard Armitage and Orlando Bloom will be answering questions. Evangeline Lilly, who plays new Elf warrior Tauriel will be in Los Angeles and the man behind it all, Peter Jackson, will be in Wellington, New Zealand where all the films have been based.
