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.
