The first "official" TV trailer for The Hobbit has landed and fans of Gandalf (Ian McKellan) should be thrilled with the new scenes showing our wizardly hero. What's noticeable about this first TV trailer? Well, the humor of author J.R.R. Tolkien shines through and of course, there's plenty of action. The adventure that brings Bilbo out of The Shire and into the larger world of Middle Earth hits screens December 14.
Fans know that when it comes to the story, The Hobbit dwarves dominate! As a huge appreciator of the series, this Movie Fanatic is counting the days, and trailers -- big or small -- only further enhance that longing for more Jackson produced Middle Earth. Thank goodness they worked out the deal that would bring Jackson back to the helm. Can you imagine this series without him? Hardly!
