The Hobbit has debuted a new TV spot, but anyone hoping to catch a glimpse of Stephen Colbert will be slightly disappointed.
The film is currently still in production, and it was recently announced that it will be split into three parts. The first, An Unexpected Journey, will feature familiar faces from the original Lord of the Rings trilogy, like Ian McKellen, who reprises his role as Gandalf, Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, and and Andy Serkis as Gollum.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, via GeekTyrant:
“The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome 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.”
