Peter Jackson has been brilliantly nourishing our collective hobbit-mania with production diary videos from his latest shoot, and yesterday's newest installment doesn't disappoint. Jackson's Christmas Day present gives us a glimpse at one of the biggest stars in "The Hobbit:" New Zealand. The first teaser for the "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (the first of a two-film set) dropped earlier this week, so Middle Earth-fans have plenty to to be excited about heading into 2012. Check out the production diary below, as well as the trailer (if it somehow didn't take over your Facebook when it was released last Wednesday).
