With the 75th anniversary of the publication of J R R Tolkien’s The Hobbit this Friday, all this week has been declared “Hobbit Week” by Tolkien scholars. And what better way to celebrate than with a brand new trailer for Peter Jackson’s three-part adaptation of the film coming in December?
This new trailer offers a lot of new scenes from the film that we haven’t glimpsed before including (spoilers of you haven’t read the book) Bilbo and the dawrves encounter with the trolls, some action in the caves under the Misty Mountains and Bilbo’s fateful meeting with Gollum. We get some more of Bilbo’s first meeting with the dwarves and a glimpse of Gandalf’s fellow wizard Radagast. (Though I’m not sure what to make of that bunny sled.)
Enjoy and Happy Hobbit Week!
