We have less than a month until the first of three Hobbit movies comes to the big screen. I’m not completely thrilled about how much they’ve split up the movies (seems a little extensive, right?), but all the footage I’ve seen of it looks great and right in line with the book and the previous movies. The newest trailer showcases why Bilbo chooses to go on this crazy, very un-hobbit-like adventure.
I just enjoy that despite the dwarves wondering why the hell this short dumpy guy was chosen by Gandalf for this very dangerous mission, Bilbo has true empathy for his companions and understands the need for a place where you belong. And despite his simple life, he does have courage and like the hobbits in Lord of the Rings, he ends up surprising them in the end. So yeah, looking forward to December.
