Lord of the Rings fans have been waiting to be reunited with Middle Earth for the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, as we venture back to the beginnings of the brilliant J.R.R. Tolkien’s treasured stories of mystical Elves, Dwarves, Goblin’s and of course the beloved Hobbits.
The countdown has begun as the release of The Hobbit is exactly a year away; it will adorn our screens on December 14 2012. This time we plunge our imaginations into the adventures of Bilbo Baggin’s, a hobbit who is on a quest to reclaim the Lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Bilbo made his appearance in the LOTR trilogies as Frodo’s cousin who adopted him at the age of 21, he also taught the elvish language to Frodo and shared the same birthday with him, as well as long walking trips.
Through the amazing direction of Peter Jackson in the Fellowship of the Ring, we watch as Bilbo leaves the Shire on his one hundred and eleventh birthday and as he departs, he passes forth the Magic Ring and Bag’s End unto Frodo, J.R.R. Tolkien’s main character.
The Hobbit will have us explore the beginning when Bilbo was younger, to when he meets a creature that will change his life forever and takes hold of the “Precious Ring”. Many characters that we have come to love in the Lord of the Ring’s Trilogies will make a return and some will not, we will have to await this journey through a New Year, and four seasons before we will travel back in time upon the captivating voyage through Middle Earth once more.
