Now that we know that The Hobbit will officially be a trilogy instead of just a part 1 and part 2, Peter Jackson and company have released a new trailer. We only see a few short shots of anything new so this isn’t that exciting of a post, but still, it’s The Hobbit. I would watch hours upon hours of as many LOTR/The Hobbit films that Peter Jackson wants to make. I own the extended blu-ray set of the LOTR trilogy and love watching the immense amount of hours packed into that set. Check out the somewhat new trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey below.
Bilbo Baggins is swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
