THE HOBBIT trailer drops! Grab Your Precious Rings and Head Back to Middle Earth

Peter Jackson's LORD OF THE RINGS was released ten years ago today. It's almost unbelievable that it has been that long. I remember those were my staple holiday movies for those three years, and I was elated when RETURN OF THE KING won best picture. So, it was only a matter of time before an adaptation of THE HOBBIT would happen. Thankfully Jackson took the reigns of director once again for Tolkein's work, and now we have our first trailer for the next Christmas.

Check the trailer after the jump.

After watching this, I realize that I've missed those movies. The fact that Jackson is directing makes THE HOBBIT have the same tone and feel as the other films. There are many familiar faces, which will draw audiences in who may not be familiar with this book. Plus, there's the introduction of all the dwarfs that accompany Bilbo who will no doubt provide a bulk of the humor in the movie. Also, how wonderful is Martin Freeman as Bilbo? (We are huge fans of his from the BBC series, Sherlock, which you should all watch right now on Netflix Instant).

Also, this movie is being split into two movies, which makes me excited because that is two more years of holidays with the hobbits. However, that means the film will include the big battle with the giant spider, which makes me not so excited.

Anyways, what do you think? Excited to revisit Middle Earth?
