It’s been 10 years to the day since the release of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and to mark the occasion the trailer for Peter Jackson‘s return to middle earth with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

The 2 minute trailer begins with Lord of the Rings star Ian Holm and Elijah Wood reprising their roles as Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, as Bilbo tells his nephew the story of how he left The Shire. Other returning Lord of the Rings veterans present in the trailer include; Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Cate Blanchett as Galadriel and Andy Serkis as Gollum.

“The Hobbit” follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins (played by The Office star Martin Freeman), who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the 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 Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters 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 guile 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 Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set for release on 14th December next year, with the second installment ‘There and Back Again’ set for release the year after that.
