We told you about the 6.3 magnitude earthquake that hit the city of Christchurch in New Zealand, and how celebs like Prince William, Joe Jonas, Kylie Minogue, and Justin Bieber were showing their support for the victims. Now it looks like the cast and team behind the production of the upcoming film The Hobbit are joining in on the efforts!

The film’s director, Sir Peter Jackson, told The Hollywood Reporter, that “Everyone involved in the production of The Hobbit is shocked and saddened by the earthquake and it’s devastating aftermath.” He added, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Christchurch and all those affected by this terrible tragedy.”

He also stated that the production has been in contact with the NZ Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management “To offer practical assistance and stands ready to help in any way we can.”

Fans of The Lord of the Rings, like website theonering.net, have urged readers to donate to relief efforts, and even featured fans who are doing just that. It’s great to see that Jackson’s presence in the country has inspired his fans to contribute as well!

The film was scheduled to shoot in the South Island later this year, but it seems fair to assume that the schedule may be affected by this tragedy. We’re just glad to see that Jackson and his crew are willing to lend a helping hand, with the death toll now at 154 and expected to rise, it’s important that awareness is raised.

And if you’re looking for a way to get involved you can go to www.redcross.org.nz and find out how!
