Dispatches from 'The Hobbit': How much meat does a Hobbit eat? -- VIDEO

That’s just one of the insider tidbits revealed in the latest production video released by Peter Jackson from the set of The Hobbit: There and Back Again. The 12-minute spot, filmed last fall across New Zealand, is a geek’s fantasy come true of mystical creatures aplenty and stunning landscape porn. There’s also inside scoop from Bilbo Baggins himself (Martin Freeman),¬†Andy “Gollum” Serkis (who pulled double duty as the film’s second unit assistant director), and a deliciously pink-shirted Sir Ian McKellen, to name a few. If that’s not tantalizing enough, you can even see a dwarf take his first-ever helicopter ride! Click through for the full video.

So how much meat does a pack of hobbits eat? According to the set caterer, more than 100 kilograms (about 220.5 pounds) per day. Hungry, hungry hobbits!
