Return to Middle-earth

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Box Art

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Director Peter Jackson returns to Middle-earth for the first chapter of a new trilogy, set 60 years before J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rign's saga. In this adventure, we follow Bilbo Baggins, who -- along with the wizard Gandalf and thirteen dwarves, led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield -- is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Along the path, the unassuming Bilbo not only discovers ingenuity and courage within himself, but gains possession of a "precious" ring tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways he cannot begin to imagine.
