It’s getting closer to release date for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and that means it’s time to discover even more goodies. 17 character posters were released and give us another look at the characters that populate this world. It’s looking pretty good!
The movie stars Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Jed Brophy as Nori, Adam Brown as Ori, Mark Hadlow as Dori, John Callen as Oin, Peter Hambleton as Gloin, Dean O’Gorman as Fili, Aidan Turner as Kili, Stephen Hunter as Bombur, James Nesbitt as Bofur, William Kircher as Bifur, Ken Stott as Balin, Graham Mctavish as Dwalin, and Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. The movie is directed by Peter Jackson.
The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome 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 Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs 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 ingenuity 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 will be released to theaters on December 14, 2012.
