While "Tintin" is taking the UK by storm, don't despair "Lord of the Rings" fans, there's a little something for you, too!

Peter Jackson has posted another production diary, which focuses on the making of prequel, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." Here, we go behind-the-scenes to showcase the upcoming film's use of 3D and how far along the team is. We also get to see a whole lot of Hobbit-ized Ian McKellen and Elijah Wood.

Ah, the good old days!

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" hits theaters on December 14, 2012. The second part, "The Hobbit: There And Back Again" will be released December 13th, 2013.
