    From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the second of a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The three films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before The Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

With more than 220 pages of spectacular visuals including a special fold-out unique to this book, Chronicles III is packed with 1000 images of concept artwork, photographs, development paintings and film stills by the artists and movie makers working behind the scenes to bring Middle-earth to life. The sketches and drawings will be accompanied by movie photography and finished imagery to show the comparison between design and final product so that the book is telling full stories.Under Jackson's direction, The Hobbit Trilogy is being shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest camera and stereo technology. Filming is taking place at Stone Street Studios, Wellington, and on location around New Zealand.The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will premier December 13, 2013, an...
