A First Look At The Shire From Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit [5 PHOTOS]

If you’re one of the billions of people who haven’t visited the set of the upcoming Peter Jackson flick The Hobbit, then these photos are probably your first look into Hobbiton. Located on an actual working farm in the North Island of New Zealand, Peter Jackson began construction of the film set way back in 1999. Among the list of things to be done included the planting of Barberry hedges, trees, gardens and the building of 37 hobbit holes along with The Mill and a double arch bridge. If these photos aren’t enough to wet your whistle, you’ll have to wait until December 13th to see the movie in full. Alternatively, you can always visit the Alexander family farm.

While Bilbo’s house had actually already existed for the filming of the first three LOTR movies, they had to build additional space for the new scenes. After all, 13 dwarves can’t all be sleeping on a pull-out couch. Peter Jackson, “We did keep the original Bag End, but in the intervening 10 years we’ve turned it into a guest house so┬ápeople can actually live and sleep in Bag End. It’s up on a farm that we’ve got so it wasn’t really possible┬áto drag it back in the studio.”
