Director Peter Jackson has wrapped production on his “The Hobbit” trilogy and fans were lucky enough to follow his last day on set (Friday, July 26) through a series of photos he posted on Facebook.
Jackson took selfies with some of the cast, including Aidan Turner and Dean O’Gorman, and also snapped a picture of the last two shots of the movie, one of which is a closeup of Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. He even shared a picture of the behind-the-camera crew.
As his final day on the movie came to a close, Jackson posted one more photo after returning home to find an impromptu party in his house. “A 20 hour day … 15 years of Tolkien … 771 days of shooting,” he writes, “And we arrive home exhausted, to a house full of teenagers! It’s going to be a long night!”
The second installment in the trilogy, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” will be in theaters December 13. Check out Jackson’s pictures below:
