The Hobbit: An Unforgettable Journey
Synopsis: Filmmaker Peter Jackson returns to Middle Earth to tell the tale of Bilbo Baggins, an epic of adventure of Dwarves and dragons that serves as a prequel to Lord of the Rings. Based on a much shorter novel than that sprawling, three-film opus, The Hobbit will nevertheless be the first in a new Middle Earth trilogy, expanding upon events and chapters in J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic story by adding to, rather than condensing, the material. Filmed in 3D, the movie finds the return of classic characters such as Gandalf and Gollum and introduces fans to dozens of new heroes along the way.
