That's a wrap! Peter Jackson announces (via Facebook) that shooting of "The Hobbit" has concluded while giving a shout out to Comic-Con. "We made it! Shoot day 266 and the end of principal photography on The Hobbit. Thanks to our fantastic cast and crew for getting us this far, and to all of you for your support! Next stop, the cutting room. Oh, and Comic Con! Cheers, Peter J."

The two-part prequel will be released as "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (December 14, 2012) and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" (December 13, 2013). Like the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, the prequel was shot in Jackson's homeland, the majestic New Zealand. Unlike "LOTR," these films will be in 3D and were shot at 48fps (we got a taste at Cinemacon). Jackson tells THR, "A lot of the critical response I was reading was people saying it’s different. Well, yes, it certainly is,” adding that "ultimately, it is different in a positive way, especially for 3D, especially for epic films and films that are trying to immerse the viewer in the experience of a story." The problem is that it will cost some theaters more money to display the technology appropriately.

Here's our look at "The Hobbit"'s cast, Immersed in Movies on the higher frame rate and one of Jackson's production video diaries.
