The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the first chapter in Peter Jackson’s new epic trilogy set in Middle-Earth 60 years before J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings saga. Follow Bilbo Baggins as he’s swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached 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 through treacherous lands swarming with Trolls, Goblins, Orcs and deadly Wargs. They must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature Gollum who will change his life forever. Alone with Gollum on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers guile and courage that surprise him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities, tied to the fate of all Middle-Earth. Several key talent members from The Lord of the Rings trilogy reprise their roles, along with exciting new cast members.

Customer Reviews of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Special Edition)
loved the movie, watched it w\my grandsons.
Very exciting Series of Movies, I have to watch them all in order to not miss anything, Love these series, Brings back a happy time of watching Movies.
This movie is a great movie for the whole family. We have all enjoyed watching it. I would recommend this movie to any of my family and friends. I recieved this movie in a timely manner from Rakuten. Thanks again for the great movie and such a great price also.
This film was extremely gorgeous. Costumes, effects, design, everything was really good. The Radagast sections didn't need to be quite so long, but I do appreciate that PJ's trying to get the Dol Goldur/Necromancer bits in. Similarly, Galadriel's comments about Angmar and Rhudaur probably will be incomprehensible to the average viewer, but they do hold a deeper significance.
