Many of us thought this day would never come, but now that we've got some physical proof on our hands, all us Ringers out there can finally rest easy. Folks, 'The Hobbit' is happening.

The latest of updates comes in the form of three images that director Peter Jackson recently shared with Entertainment Weekly. The first shows Jackson going over a scene with Martin Freeman in costume as Bilbo Baggins, the second shows Sir Ian McKellen looking exactly the same as pipe-smoking Gandalf the Grey, and the final image shows Freeman again with a company of what look to be dwarves sitting around in his home.

They're all gorgeous and they've got us giddy as sin, so hit the jump to see the images in full and Jackson's added commentary on them.
