It has been announced that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will have its world premiere on November 28th in Wellington, New Zealand. The event will take place at the Embassy Theatre, though there’s no word yet on whether or not tickets will be available for the public. Here’s what Peter Jackson had to say about debuting the movie in NZ:
Wellington had become home for the films’ cast and crew over the past two years, Sir Peter Jackson said.
“I know I speak for a company of hobbits, dwarves, elves and orcs when I say that this city holds a special place in all our hearts.
“We cannot think of a more perfect way to send The Hobbit off into the world than to celebrate with a huge party here in Wellington, where the journey began.”
Principal photography for both parts of The Hobbit is said to be wrapping at the end of next month.
