Dwarves Get In Shape And Cherries Get Popped In 'The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug' Video Blog

Peter Jackson released the second production blog for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (first one here) along with an announcement. He says they won’t be present at San Diego Comic-Con this year, his reason being that they’ll be shooting pickup scenes that week and he doesn’t have time to get a sizzle reel ready while staying on schedule for Smaug‘s release this December 13th. We suspect he may also be avoiding a repeat of last year’s Barfgate™.

But any disappointment about the lack of Comic-Con clips evaporated when the video introduced us to “Dwarvicising”.

Yes to this forever.

If that wasn’t enough to make the video worth watching, we then learned of the existence of “Radagast poo”, in stores never.

It somehow gets even stranger when a scene opens with this quote for the ages.

“I popped my cherry on the fake horse today.” — Orlando Bloom

Yep. Just going to put that right there, out of context in a blockquote. That happened. Okay, here’s some context:

I regret nothing.
