The wait is nearly over. Over the coming days, after a long and torturous production saga, the first outing from Peter Jackson‘s much anticipated The Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey, will finally reach a cinema screen near you. While you make that last minute decision over what format and frame rate to witness the return to Middle Earth in, another clip has been released to whet your appetite even more. This solemn and poignant ninety second snippet sees Thorin Oakenshield and his party of dwarves joining together to sing “Misty Mountains” during their stay at Bilbo Baggins’ quiet little Hobbit-hole prior to their grand adventure.
Should you still be unaware of The Hobbit and its plot, here’s the official synopsis for Peter Jackson’s upcoming film:
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the 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. 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 ofguile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” …a simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released at US cinemas on December 14th and UK cinemas on December 13th.
