The Hobbit Panel - San Diego Comic Con 2012

I attended the Warner Brothers panel in Hall H and got to see the exclusive footage for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Attending the panel were Peter Jackson, Phillippa Boyens(producer/writer), Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins), Andy Serkis (Gollum/Assistant Director), Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield), Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins).

Galadriel the Most Powerful?

Some people are concerned about Phillippa Boyens's comment regarding Galadriel:
"Galadriel as you all know is the most powerful being in Middle Earth at this time."

Clearly Galadriel is not the most powerful being in the traditional sense of 'who would win in a fight'; for example Galadriel vs. A Balrog, Galadriel vs. Sauron, Galadriel vs. Glorfindel, and so forth.

I think what Phillipa was getting at was that Galadriel's reign and rulership was the most powerful at the time of the Hobbit. Remember, this is before Sauron had mustered all his troops. Galadriel rules a realm and the Maia (Gandalf, Saruman, Ratagast) do not.

From the Warner Brothers booth I picked a magazine and acorn pin.
