“Hobbit” Reaction Video Gets Its Own Reaction Video From “Hobbit” Cast

Peter Jackson made an adorably meta video of Hobbit cast members reacting to a fan reaction video. Then the fans in the video made a reaction video to the reaction video and it’s pretty much the nerdiest, best thing you’ll see today.

1. Two Tolkien fans filmed themselves watching the new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and posted it to their “Happy Hobbits” webseries.

2. Sisters Kellie and Alex were pretty excited and enthusiastic about what they saw in the trailer.

5. Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Evangeline Lilly (Tauriel) and Lee Pace (Thranduil) seemed genuinely pleased by the video, laughing and applauding the girls’ reactions.

The “Happy Hobbit” video bloggers have yet to post a video in response to Jackson’s awesomely sweet gesture, but it’s probably going to be pretty amazing.

7. Update - 9:45 p.m. ET: The Happy Hobbit bloggers have indeed posted a “reaction video to the reaction video of the reaction video” (also known as “Hobbit-ception”). To say they are wildly excited would be an understatement.
