Someone with a lot of time on his or her hands and a lot of love for J.R.R. Tolkien has edited together a super-preview of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" -- and fans are loving it.
Anyone allergic to spoilers need not worry either because all of the footage was found in a variety of trailers and TV spots. Using what fans have most likely already seen -- unless their allergy is so severe that they have completely stopped watching trailers -- a YouTube user going by joatmonjb stitches together a linear narrative, previewing "the possible running order of the final film."
And at just over seven-and-a-half-minutes, it's hard not to feel like you've just watched the final film. Still, it's nowhere near the 2-hour-40-minute version that hits theaters on Dec. 14, 2012, so admirers are nothing but grateful for the extended sneak peek.
"I think this may actually tide me over until I get to see the movie!" one viewer exclaims, while another kindly refers to the fan-made trailer has "pure awesomeness." Others are more sentimental.
"I started tearing up while watching the trailer," a comment reads. "I read the Hobbit in my childhood and it was epic, and seeing this is very moving and heart touching."
Check out the epic trailer below, which is on its way to going viral, and give us your reaction. Is this the best trailer yet?
