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 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.



L-R: Bifur, Dwalin, Bilbo, Bofur, Oin

Anyone else get the feeling like there might be a reboot after this? I get the feeling that the trilogy might get redone, set after this film with the current cast.

There's no way they would even dare reboot Lord of the Rings.

I can't wait! There so many movies coming out this year that I'm looking forward to, but this one I'm dying for.

I still can't get over how perfect Martin Freeman is for Bilbo.

@CaptainDusty I dont think there would be anyone better for the role.

Definitely not. He's a great actor and the casting directors really did an awesome job.

Can't wait to see these movies.

When I think of the scene in the beginning, (the one pictured), where the dwarves are all in Bilbo's house and he's running around getting them food and drink and stuff, I can already picture Freeman doing that as Bilbo.

@ronnie42 considering the only characters who appear in both the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings are played by the same actors in both films (with the exception of Martin Freeman as young Bilbo, although Ian Holm still plays the older version of the character), there's no way they'll reboot the series after this film and use this cast, since they'd just be using the same cast anyway.
