The Hobbit Movie

Updated on April 12, 2013

The Hobbit Movie Part I, II and III

The Hobbit movie is the prequel to the Lord of the Rings. It tells the tale of Bilbo Baggins and his adventures about 60 years prior to the events chronicled in LOTR.

Bilbo is an adventurous young Hobbit (actually more adventurous than his nephew Frodo will become years later). He is invited on a mission to rescue a huge pile of treasure from a dragon, along with Gandalf the wizard and a group of 13 dwarves. Along the way they encounter Shapeshifters, Goblin Hordes, the One Ring, Gollum, giant spiders, a Dragon and, of course, get into a war.

It actually has more action and adventure, as well as a far lighter tone than the longer and darker, Lord of the Ring Trilogy.

Originally the Hobbit Movies were planned to be a pair, with each one being released in December. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey being released in December 2012, and The Hobbit: There and Back being being released in December of 2013. But this decision was changed to make it 3 movies in the hobbit trilogy. The release of the first one remains the same, while a 2nd movie has been added, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug", set to be released in December 2013, with the movie, "The Hobbit: There and Back again" set to be released in the Summer of 2013.

The Hobbit Movie Trilogy is being written, directed and produced by Peter Jackson, the creator of the LOTR trilogy. Much of the cast is returning since Gandalf and Gollum are extremely longed lived and the Elves are close to being Immortal. It has also been announced that Frodo will return for this movie, most likely as a framing device as the story is being told. (All the events of the story happened before he was born)

The Hobbit movie is being broken into three parts and is being filmed back-to-back-toback of consecutive releases in 2012 and 2013. The three parts of the Hobbit story are subtitled, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and finally, The Hobbit: There and Back Again. All are based on the Lord of the Rings Prequel known as the Hobbit (There and back again).

Hobbit Movie New Cast
Hobbit Movie New Cast

Martin Freeman is Bilbo Baggins

Bilbo is the hero of this story. He is not a new character, since Old Bilbo was an important part of the Lord of The Rings movies. But he might as well be.

Young Bilbo is even more adventurous than his nephew Frodo will be. The Hobbit movie is the story of his adventures with a group of Dwarves and Gandalf and how he fought a dragon, encountered Gollum and found the Ring of power.

Luke Evans is Bard the Bowman.

Bard is the ancestor of Lord Girion of Dale. He and his family escaped to Laketown when Smaug the Dragon destroyed Dale and took over the Lonely Mountain.

Evangeline Lilly is Tauriel

Tauriel is a female woodland elf. It is been explicitly stated that she is not being introduced as a love interest for Legalos. She is not a character from the book, so her exact role is unclear.

Benedict Cumberbatch is the voice of Smaug

Smaug is considered to be the most powerful Dragon of the Third Age. He is an intelligent and cunning dragon and can speak the common tongue and has the power to simply control peoples mind with his gaze. He is extremely wealthy and sits has his entire mountain filled with the gold he has collected over a lifetime.

Stephen Fry is the Master of Laketown

The Master of Laketown is a friend and companion of Bard the Bowman. He is greedy, but he is also a decent man and cunning and intelligent.

Mikael Persbrandt as Beorn

Beorn is a wild man and a berserker. He is an acquaintance and becomes friendly with Gandalf, Bilbo and the Dwarves. He has the ability to shapeshift into a Bear and has many bear-like features.

Barry Humphries as the Great Goblin

An exceptionally large and powerful Goblin who is the leader of a huge band of Goblins in the Misty Mountains. The great Goblin is a foil and a thorn in the side of the Dwarves and Bilbo.

Sylvester McCoy as Radagast

Radgast the Brown is a companion of Gandalfs and another wizard. He has exceptional power of animals and may be a shape shifter.

There are 3 groups of Cast for the Hobbit movie. Returning Cast. New Cast. And the 13 Dwarfs

      @Vantis: Glad you liked it. First and second one were both decent I think. The one problem (with both) is that they needed editing. If they had stayed on the original 2 movie track, rather than blowing it up to 3 movies to make more money, these films would have been perfect.

      I'm looking forward to this second one. The first was OK, but I think there is much more coming :) I just have to find the time to go and see it. Great lens you have here.

      I think it was a very poor choice for Jackson to add in female Elven characters, just to one, have more female characters and two, to have them shown as fighters, just liek the men. How ridiculous! T change the book story for a technical reason to help it flow better in the LOTR trilogy and the Hobbit is one thing, but just for some politically correct appeasement of our overly feminized country. Pathetic logic and again a poor choice..

      I was hoping to see Haldir again in the Hobbit. But so far no news on that. Glad that Peter and his partners in production created another Elf woman in the Hobbit. It was missing in the book and will give a little inside into the skills as female elven fighters. Arwen was changed during filming LOTR and became very soft. We needed someone in the Hobbit to show that female elves where also taking up weapons and had great skills just like the male elves. Good choice Peter! Thank you :-)
