Oh, so sad when people who love each other must part. Friday, July 26, 2013 in New Zealand was the last day of filming for The Hobbit trilogy, and the last day of Peter Jackson filming Tolkien‘s work. The last day for Richard Armitage to embody Thorin Oakenshield. The last day for the remaining dwarves to be together as dwarves. So sad!
The enormity of the situation is astounding. SO much energy, time, effort has been put into creating Middle Earth in New Zealand. Both for LOTR and The Hobbit. To think that will be no more is….epic. The filming of these trilogies is an epic story.
I am so grateful to PJ for letting the fans share in the last day. When I write this the last Facebook entry was at 10:30 AM in New Zealand. It’s now 1:06 PM in Wellington, but no new Facebook entry. It’s 9:06 PM EST here, and I don’t know how late I will stay up. But I will try to stay for at least one more Facebook post. I want to be part of it!! I LOVE Tolkien. I LOVE The Hobbit. I LOVE Peter Jackson. But most of all, I LOVE Richard Armitage, and I hope PJ posts a picture of him on his last day as Thorin. Historic.
