The Hobbit

Yesterday, the first official trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit Part 1 was released.  We here at NNAR, to put it modestly, are really frickinexcited for Tolkien’s prequel to LOTR to hit the big screen.  Those cast members new to Middle Earth include Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Evangeline Lilly.  Many actors are returning to work with Jackson on this project, namely Ian Mckellan and Andy Serkis (who is also co-directing). Over the next year, re-reading of Bilbo’s epic tale is a must.  But for now, wet your whistle with this short video.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to release December 2012.  The second installment, The Hobbit: There and Back Again is slated to hit theaters December 2013.
