Technically it’s the prequel to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
But getting filming of The Hobbit off the ground in New Zealand -- has been a novel unto itself.
After setback on top of setback, Director Peter Jackson has called for quiet on the set.
Quiet, MTV reports, after a number of problems plagued creation of the film.
"Production on "The Hobbit" has been rife with its share of problems since Jackson first presented the idea to adapt it back in 1997...Jackson and New Line Cinemas were involved in a legal battle that eventually relegated Jackson to executive producer ...Then director Guillermo del Toro agreed to come onboard...but in May 2010, he said that he couldn't continue...even after Jackson was again confirmed as director...there were union disputes..that almost forced "The Hobbit" to relocate to a different filming area."
With hardly a frame shot, talk has already turned to just how expensive this epic prequel will be. 3News reports, the New Zealand government has offered huge tax breaks to keep the film in Kiwi territory.
Rachel Tiffen: "But it is not hard to understand why security is so tight. The two Lord of The Rings prequels are costing around $680 million to make, with perhaps a billion over time to our economy and the Government's pledged incentives and tax breaks of $100 million."
Fans only care about the box office. And from Middle Earth -- to the ends of the earth -- Hobbit fans everywhere are rejoicing at the idea of this film. Or, so says, Coventry Telegraph’s The Geek Files.
"There's been a worldwide sigh of relief ...Jackson has also launched a Facebook page which includes two new images of the filmmaker on set."
Movieline notes, it’s taken 75 years -- to get The Hobbit from the page to the screen, and we’re not there yet.
“...it’s easy to forget just how long this movie has been in production — and the minor miracle it is that not only is The Hobbit being filmed, but Peter Jackson is behind the camera.”
But don’t expect The Hobbit to find its way to the box office anytime soon. The BBC interviewed actor Martin Freeman who plays Bilbo Baggins. Freeman says, like all odyssey’s, this one, will take some time.
"There are some bits of bad luck associated with it. We're all very optimistic about it. We're ready to go - just as soon as 2015 comes around."

"The Hobbit" follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.
Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever... Gollum.
Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
On today's episode, we bust out trailers for Wrath of the Titans, Jack the Giant Killer, The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit!
