There will be more artwork to come over the next few days, and also information on how you can submit your art to have it showcased on A-U.
Empire Magazine of the UK issued a sneak peak this past week of their August 2011 issue which will feature "a lengthy and exclusive report" from <i>The Hobbit</i> set. Peter Jackson is quoted in the article as saying:<br /><br />"I’m exactly the same filmmaker as I was ten years ago . . . I’m trying to nail the same thing that I did before. I’m just telling the story."<br /><br />The sneak peak photos can be viewed at the Empire <a href="http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=31352" target="_blank">website</a> and the new pics can be viewed in our <a href="http://s1133.photobucket.com/albums/m592/Arwen-Undomiel/The%20Hobbit%20Characters/" target="_blank">gallery</a>. The magazine itself can now be purchased in stores or can be ordered online. We can be assured that there will be many more "first looks" as filming progresses.
Peter Jackson has just announced new casting details on his facebook page as well as confirming the casting of Luke Evans and Benedict Cumberbatch. In his post today, he wrote:<br /><br />"Evangeline Lilly will be playing a new character - the Woodland Elf, Tauriel. Her name means "daughter of Mirkwood" and, beyond that, we must leave you guessing! (No, there is no romantic connection to Legolas). What is not a secret is how talented and compelling an actress Evangeline is; we are thrilled and excited she will be the one to bring our first true Sylvan Elf to life".<br /><br />He also announced that Barry Humphries would be portraying the Goblin King in the same way that Andy Serkis depicted Gollum.<br />
