Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood revealed that The Hobbit has been made 'in the same spirit' as The Lord of the Rings movies.

The actor is set to reprise the role of Frodo Baggins in the Peter Jackson directed movie, over ten years after he first played the character.

And the actor was happy to be back on the very family orientated set.

Speaking to Collider the actor said: "Returning to that space, it's largely the same group of people who had made The Lord of the Rings.

"I was definitely aware of the fact that there were more trucks now and more trailers, and the production feels larger in scale.

"On a technological level, obviously that's a huge part of it, as well. But, at the end of the day, it's still the same group of people, making it very much in the same spirit... so that intimacy and that family aspect on set is still the same."

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the first instalment of the story and sees Martin Freeman take over the role of Bilbo Baggins from Ian Holm.

While there are a whole host of new names on the cast Wood isn't the only familiar face returning as Ian McKellan, Andy Serkis and Orlando Bloom will also be back.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released December 14th.
