Bilbo Baggins begins his journey here, as he and a determined group of Dwarves travel to Lonely Mountain to reclaim a treasure stolen from them by the dragon Smaug. Director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Lovely Bones, King Kong, The Frighteners) returns to The Shire once again to tell a tale of Bilbo Baggins on adventure in ‘The Hobbit‘.
Based on the J. R. R. Tolkien’s fantasy novel of the same name. ‘The Hobbit‘ reunites a majority of the cast from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ films to tell the story of Tolkien’s class tale. ‘The Hobbit‘ arrives in theaters on December 14th, 2012 and subsequent films The Desolation of Smaug (2013) and There and Back Again (2014) are to follow.
