Peter Jackson will unveil new footage from “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” as part of Monday’s worldwide fan event.

“The most intense ten weeks I’ve ever shoot in my life,” Jackson told the audience about “The Hobbit” sequel, which arrives this December.

The event will also include interviews with cast members including Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace and Luke Evans.

Lilly, who plays the elf Tauriel in the film, said her character was inspired by the classic character Tinkerbell.

“She’s a bad ass little fairy!” the actress told an audience in Los Angeles.


New Line and MGM have organized the celebration, which will include Jackson and cast members gathering at satellite-linked theaters in Los Angeles, New York, London and Wellington to screen footage and answer questions in front of a live audience.

Anderson Cooper hosted the New York installment with Bloom and actor Richard Armitage.
