Posted December 23, 2019 04:04:17When Peter Jackson was filming “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” at The Hobbit World in California, he brought along his pal, actor Ian McKellen.
When filming began, McKellen, who plays Bilbo Baggins, said he was in shock when he heard the news.
“I was like, ‘What are you talking about?
I’m still in the Middle-Earth world,'” McKellen said.
The Hobbit director, who was known for his dark and gritty films like “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Return of the King”, is a big fan of the Hobbit series and has said he had seen a LOT of movies with Jackson.
“[Jackson] is a huge fan of Tolkien, so we were in the same room together,” he said.
“He was saying, ‘I just came from the set and I’m so proud of the work you did’.” “He was also very kind and said that he loved it.”
McKellen said Jackson’s visit made him feel like he was “just on a movie set with some of his favorite actors, and a bunch of them were dressed up and doing what they do”.
“It was really amazing to see it all come together, and it’s such a tribute to [Jackson].
I mean, you can’t get much better than that.”
Jackson’s visit was part of his film-making “Mud” tour, which was designed to get fans out to the world, so he could meet them on set.
McKayden said Jackson also gave McKellen a little hint about what the filming was about when he told him that it would take place in “the mud” and that the hobbits would be going to “the forest”.
“He said, ‘We are going to the forest’,” McKayden said.
“He had these really interesting ideas about what they were going to do there, and how they would live there.
He just made it sound so real.
It was like he just knew the world inside out.”
McKaydens reaction to Jackson’s meeting was similar to his reaction to the “Lord of the Dead” film, which he had not seen in the three years he had been shooting.
After he and his cast had wrapped filming, Jackson walked them down the corridor and asked them, “Is it all right?”
McKayds response was similar: “I don’t think so, it’s all mud.”
McKeesons reaction was similar.
“It was just like ‘Oh my god’, it was like they didn’t want to go back there,” he told The Independent.
For his part, McKinnon said he found the meeting interesting.
I don,t know if it was a coincidence, but he was definitely there, I don’t know if he was just watching,” he added.
Jackson had visited Australia and New Zealand earlier this year, where he met with fans and the media.
Despite the hype surrounding the filming, McKiddens mum, Sharon, said it was very much a “real” event.”
I think it’s really nice that he was there and it was fun,” she said.
McKaydells mum, Katie, said she found the visit “really exciting”.”
I have to say that it was really cool to see him and to see his wife and daughter.
I think it was the best visit he’s had,” she told The Age.
But while it was good to see the movie, McKellaris mum said she felt the Hobbit was not a good movie.”
It’s a bit of a slog, it kind of takes its time to get going, but it is a good story and it really gives a lot of people a reason to be out there,” she added.”
We think it is wonderful and we really enjoy it, but we don’t necessarily think it should be seen.
Auckland’s iconic Auckland Harbour was covered in mud for the first time in its history, on Christmas Day.
As a result, tourists from around the world descended on the city to enjoy the city’s green beaches, waterfalls, coves and sand beaches.
More to come.
