Peter Jackson only posted two pics from The Hobbit, with a quick message: “On the set of THE HOBBIT in Wellington, NZ.”

Just enough to get his Lord of the Rings fans beyond giddy!

Filming on The Hobbit has officially started, with two films set to be released to tell the tale of Middle-earth 60 years before J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.

To further add to the excitement over the highly anticipated release of The Hobbit, Jackson is shooting in digital 3D!

Martin Freeman will star as Bilbo Baggins, with Ian McKellen reprising his role as Gandalf the Grey and Cate Blanchett (Galadriel), Andy Serkis (Gollum) and Elijah Wood (Frodo) also returning.

The Hobbit will be released in two films – in late 2012 and 2013.
