Fans of "The Lord of the Rings” would love to hear that J. R. R. Tolkien’s most famous novel The Hobbit is currently in production and is being directed by Peter Jackson. It is the prequel to "The Lord of the Rings" series and is divided into two parts “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and “The Hobbit: There and Back Again”, will release in theaters on December 14, 2012 and on December 13, 2013 respectively.
"The Hobbit" is a tale of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), who enjoys his calm life at home until the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) shows up with a group of 13 dwarves. The dwarves are out to find their gold that was stolen years ago by a fierce dragon, Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch). Thus starts a voyage through treacherous land where awful rivals roam, in which several challenges are encountered and adventures sprung. Bilbo is worried with himself in that he all the time wishes he were back in his home. In order to cross the mountain, the dwarves have to beat the goblins and later in the story, the goblins side with wolves and go after them. Then the dwarves have to cross a unsafe forest that goes on for what seems like eternally and the most essential thing they must do is stay on the track. But the dwarves get fidgety and want to leave the track, which is a clash in itself and also makes more conflicts with rivals. Bilbo and the dwarves always seem to overcome their problems and go on with their adventure.
The story can be separated into two parts, related to the time before and the time after the finding of the gold. After the gold is found, the tone of the story turns into darker. The dwarves turn into less brave and more hesitant as clash over the proper ownership of the recovered gold threaten to lead to war. The matter is not finally resolved until a brutal collide has taken place.
