The first of a trilogy of films adapted from the enduringly popular J.R.R. Tolkien masterpiece, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which is nominated for three Academy Awards, is an epic adventure that immerses audiences once again in the fantastical world of Middle-earth.
Set 60 years before The Lord of the Rings, the adventure follows our hero Bilbo Baggins, the eponymous Hobbit, who is reluctantly 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, Bilbo finds himself press ganged into the company of thirteen Dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield and on a journey into the wild. Together they must traverse troll infested forests and goblin lairs, hunted by a merciless white Orc and haunted by a mysterious and sinister figure known only as The Necromancer.
