A New Dawn In The Shire - Latest Pictures From Matamata (Hobbiton)

The dear friends of The Red Carpet Tours have been able to take some pictures of Matamata (Hobbiton) in New Zealand which show that work is well underway in the reconstruction of several Hobbit Holes. A full set of photos can be seen on OneRing.net . Work seem to be involving also the interior of the holes . I shall definitely have a good look around Hobbiton in September ; it would be truly fantastic if the interior of Bag End was to be reconstructed and left as an exhibition at Matamata. Peter Jackson has a perfect replica of Bag End on the grounds of his property near Wellington, now that is 'Hobbitishly' cool. With all this work underway , and the prospect of filming starting soon it must be just a matter of time before cast is announced. Looking forward to visit Matamata in September :)
