New featurette for The Hobbit: watch now

The Hobbit has released a new featurette online, and the upshot of it is, never invite a dwarf to dinner if you want to keep your house in one piece.

The featurette focuses on the dinner scene at Bilbo’s house, in which thirteen dwarves cram themselves around the dinner table and generally wreak all kinds of havoc on Bag End.

You also get a sense of the amount of effort required to dress a scene like this, with endless plates of food being served up, and Bilbo’s pantry constantly being dressed and re-dressed.

Take a look, below…

As with most of these behind-the-scenes featurettes, the overarching theme seems to be just how much fun everybody had working on the project. As you can imagine, there are worse things than being paid to have a food fight every night.

Directed by Peter Jackson and co-starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in the UK on 14 December 2012.
