Peter Jackson announced that principle photography on The Hobbit has been completed.
Jackson has been down in New Zealand working on his latest Tolkien adaptation, which he will split into two movies, and after 266 they have wrapped.
He announced the news on the movie's Facebook page: "We made it! Shoot day 266 and the end of principal photography on The Hobbit," Jackson wrote on Friday morning (July 6).
"Thanks to our fantastic cast and crew for getting us this far, and to all of you for your support!
"Next stop, the cutting room. Oh, and Comic Con!"
It will be the first time that Jackson has taken audiences back to Middle Earth in almost a decade, in fact The Two Towers will be ten years old when The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits the big screen.
Martin Freeman will lead the cast as he takes over the role of Bilbo Baggins while Ian McKellan, Andy Serkis, Luke Evans and Richard Armitage will also star.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released 14th December.
