The director has dropped a brand new video blog today but he starts off by letting fans headed to San Diego that not only will Jackson not be there, but the movie won't be making a presence at all, citing a packed schedule and the fact he's still filming 'Smaug.' That means no sizzle reel, no panel, no actors -- nada. Sorry folks, especially those who were already planning some Middle Earth cosplay. But hopefully this little featurette will be enough to tide you over, taking viewers behind the scenes of pick-ups for 'Smaug' and more. It's yet another look at how happy and awesome everyone is making these movies, so yeah, nothing much new really.
"The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug" opens on December 13th.
