You’ve already seen the teaser trailer, now take a gander at the full trailer for Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit Part 1: An Unexpected Journey”, the first of a new trilogy that takes viewers back to the magical land of Middle Earth, where men were men and dwarves carried big ass bladed weapons capable of taking your head off with a simple swipe. That’s just how they roll down in Middle Earth. Does it look epic? Of course it looks epic. Peter Jackson wouldn’t know how to do anything but with the material. But don’t take my word for it; take a gander at the trailer below for yourself, ganderers.

The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic 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 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 ingenuity 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.

The traveling company of Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter, Rob Kazinsky, Aidan Turner, Peter Hambleton, John Callen, Jed Brophy, Mark Hadlow, Adam Brown, Cate Blanchett, Andy Serkis, Elijah Wood, Jeffrey Thomas, Mike Mizrahi, and Evangeline Lilly begins on December 19, 2012, followed by parts 2 and 3 in the next two years.

    I still can not help but pick out the parts that deviate

      Ah but that’s part of the fun. Personally and you can kill me if you want, I think the LoTR films were better in some ways than the books. Aragorn immediately comes to mind. I hated him in the book. He was just to “I’m the hero that will save the day!” and it really irritated me. I loved the way Viggo played him because that sense of failure was still with him and the line about their weakness not being his was great. I know people hated Tom Bombadill being omitted but really other than that part he really isn’t essential to the story. I will say omitting the Palantirs was a mistake but other than that none of the changes were bad. With The Hobbit it looks like he’ll be adding not taking away.

        See I tire of seeing the “reluctant” Hero. Aragorn knew his destiny and responsibilities and accepted them. Bombadil was not a problem but Jackson changed alot of things that Tolkien put in there for a reason, in some case changing the whole point of what Tolkien wanted to say (the army of elves at helms deep, the omission of the scourging of the shire.) When hollywood changes stories such as Harry Potter or Game of Thrones it my irk me but the Authors are still around and they had to sign off on it. But in this case they are taking a mans life work and altering it to be what he didn’t intend and he can’t defend it.

          Normally I’m not one for that cliche either, but they did it very very well, and it made sense with this character, and when he finally did in the film it held more weight to me than in the book. I have to agree with the omissions of the scouring and Tom Bombadil. The scouring would’ve seemed anti clamactic after everything that went before it, (and to those not in the know, probably would’ve thought Hollywood tacked on one last battle scene for the hell of it) and as for people not being able to defend it, neither can any other author that Hollywood and the film industry in general has used as source material over the last 100+ years. I don’t mind changes as long as they stay true to the source material, and for the most part these really have. The trick and thing people fail to see is that an adaptation has to change things from one genere to the other or it will fail automatically for trying to portray it the same as in it’s source material.

            I understand fully, I am an amateur film maker. I don’t disagree with all changes it’s the changes that changed the meaning of the story. The major changes Jackson made went against what Tolkien wanted you to take from his story. Changes have to be made from book to film true enough but now Directors and Writers want to change someone elses work to fit their “Interpretation” without looking at what the author meant. This has happened to me albeit on a much smaller scale. My point about defending it is movie such as the Potter films, the author is still alive and well, she did not have to give consent for the changes or give carte blanche but she did. Tolkien was very protective of his work and rejected many film scripts for LOTR except for one that never got made.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            New Line couldn’t have gotten anywhere near LoTR without the consent of Tolkein’s son and such. Hell the Hobbit wouldn’t be made if New Line didn’t settle some issues with the Tolkeins. And though some of the changes may have missed what Tolkein was trying to do but for the most part they succeded. And that’s still better than missing the point entirely. If you listen to the commentries or interviews, they are very much aware of the fact that LoTR was an anti-war, pro-nature and humanity piece. And it really does come across.

          • http://www.facebook.com/curtis.a.hedrick Curtis Andrew Hedrick

            The Tolkien family, Christopher being the spokesperson, have made the comments that they regret letting the LOTR films be made and have no love for them. The Hobbit hooplah was between New Line and Warner Bros. LOTR got a huge following of anti-war advocates in the 60s and 70s but even then Tolkien wasn’t against war. He made sure to show the horror of war but also its necessity. He commented on the Scourging of the Shire calling it one of the most important parts of LOTR because it showed Evil will penetrate anywhere unless fought against.
