Peter Jackson Spots The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug with Howard Shore

Peter Jackson Spots The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug with Howard Shore

Recently, director Peter Jackson live-blogged his last day of shooting on The Hobbit trilogy.  One of the many things that took place on that day was some spotting of the second film with composer Howard Shore. What he says should be encouraging for those who suffered any level of disappointment with The Unexpected Journey.  If you are wanting some new thematic material, sounds like that's what they have in  store for us ...

Here's what Jackson said...

The score for Film 2 is going to be terrific. Last year, we were a little frustrated because we had to revisit so many of the LotR themes - The Shire, Rivendell, Galadriel, Gollum, and the Ring - we did this because I'm wanting these 3 Hobbit movies to have great unity with the Rings films in design, wardrobe, story and music, so it meant "An Unexpected Journey" had to acknowledge what had gone before. But this time around, apart from a couple of Ring moments, it's all new: Beorn, Mirkwood, The Woodland Realm, Laketown, Bard and Smaug all give Howard the chance to write brand new themes, and he's knocking it out of the park!

So how does this blip make you feel about the upcoming score for The Desolation of Smaug?
