I’ve been a fan of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings since I was very small. My dad is a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, to the point that he actually wore out his hard cover copies of the trilogy. So one of my favorite memories is sitting on the edge of my dad’s chair as he read these wonderful stories to me.
When The Lord of the Rings came out, I saw each of the movies several times in the theater. It would get to the point that I wouldn’t have anyone to go with and would have to see them by myself. So, I’ve been following the progress of the films that will bring The Hobbit to the big screen.
The long wait has been worth it as the first teaser trailer was released tonight. The movie looks fantastic, but you can see for yourself below. The first poster has been also released tonight. Both of these things are making me so excited for this movie to come out. For all the fans of The Hobbit, it is going to be a long year until we get to see this book come to life. But at least we now have a trailer that we can watch as we wait.
