While there was a lot of great stuff in the latest production diary, the one big piece of bad news to come out of it was that pretty much all Hobbit-related panels and appearances at Comic-con have been cancelled–just watch the first minute of the production diary below to hear exactly why.
The short of it is that there’s just not enough time. Between the post-production, the pick-up shoots, and getting all the actors in, there just wasn’t any time–or a feasible schedule–to have anything prepared for Comic-con in San Diego this month.
So, if you were one of the lucky ones to get a ticket within the couple of minutes they were available before they were sold out, my condolences!
