The Hobbit hits the big screen
For all you many, many fans of The Lord of the Rings films, the director Peter Jackson is bringing out another fantasy epic called The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Before Frodo’s quest to destroy The One Ring, Bilbo himself crossed Middle-Earth in an epic adventure that set the scene for The Lord of the Rings.
Hitting the big screen in December, it is the first of two films – check out the trailer:
But did you know that it’s all based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit?
It follows the life of Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit who lives a quiet and contented life who has no desire to travel far from the comforts of his home.
But then one day the wizard Gandalf and a band of dwarves arrive unexpectedly and enlist his services – as a burglar! – on a dangerous expedition to raid the treasure-hoard of Smaug the dragon!
Before he knows it he’s on a journey that sees him cross paths with man-eating trolls, elves and a certain mysterious ring that makes him invisible!
The Hobbit is published by Harper Collins Children’s Books and is available right now – click here to check it out and order your copy!
