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.
