It seems that even Sesame Street is adding to the Hobbit Hype this week. Check out this quick Vine post where Sir Ian McKellen meets Gandalf. Apparently they are going to discuss manners.  Tune-in to Sesame Street on 12/12 to see their “Lord of the Crumbs” spoof.

Synopsis: The film continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous Mirkwood Forest. After escaping capture by the dangerous Woodland Elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all—a creature more terrifying than any before, which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself—the Dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch).

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug arrives December 13, 2013.

It's a Vine.  The sound isn't broken, there is a sound icon in the upper left corner of the video, click it & you should be able to hear it.  Basically Muppet Gandalf says "You Shall Not Pass!" McKlellen responds, "Please?" Muppet Gandalf responds, "Oh, go right ahead." McKlellen responds, "Thanks Gandy."

 There's a Batman vs. Superman casting rumor about Jason Moma in talks to join the film and Mania has noting on it what gives.
