Video: We hear from The Hobbit casting director Amy Hubbard and are joined by some of the stars of Tower House School's D.I.Y version of the film!

Profile: With The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey just around the corner, we decided to get in touch with our inner hobbit and look forward to the upcoming movie, sure to be one of the biggest films of 2012.

We hear from casting director Amy Hubbard about some of the challenges that came from casting such a big movie (she also worked on the original Lord of the Rings trilogy), and we're also joined by head of drama at Tower House School, who made their own version of the film! He even brought Gandalf with him!
