A couple more photos from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey recently surfaced Included in this batch is our first look at Elijah Wood’s return as Frodo Baggins.  The Frodo role is sure to be a short one, but it is nice to see him none the less.  Ian Holm is also set to reprise his role as “older” Bilbo.  We also get a couple nice shots of Ian McKellan as Gandalf and Martin Freeman as, Young Bilbo.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in 3D on December 14th, followed by The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on December 13th, 2013 and The Hobbit: There and Back Again July 18th, 2014.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey synopsis’

“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. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. 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 of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

What do you think?  I really like the idea of having LotR characters in The Hobbit.

    • It's kind of nuts how Elijah Wood doesn't look like he's aged a day in the past 10 years.

      Hobbits age slower I guess. 🙂 Gandalf looks great as always.
