When a film series is a prequel trilogy to the very-famous The Lord of the Rings trilogy, you know the stakes are high, sky-high! The first instalment of The Hobbit series, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, is nearing its release date as fans wait in anticipation!
Based on J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy novel The Hobbit, the film sees Martin Freeman essay the role of Bilbo Baggins. He, along with a dynamic group of dwarfs, will fight and reclaim the Lonely Mountain and its treasure from the dragon Smaug (whose look has been kept under wraps)!
However, Baggins is not a born fighter! It is only after a sudden announcement by wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) that he realises he has been hired as a part of the Hobbit army; do look out for Baggins’ bewildered reaction in the trailer to this unexpected declaration!
While the promos and spots of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey certainly offer an amazing visual spectacle, fans have already started comparing The Hobbit series to The Lord of the Rings trilogy! So, is The Hobbit series another epic sword-and-sorcery trilogy in the making? Time shall tell!
For now, catch the trailer of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey below and sound off in the comments section.
