This prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy follows Bilbo Baggins, an upstanding member of the "little people, on the hazardous journey with Gandalf the Grey. Together with 13 fortune-seeking dwarves, Bilbo Baggins will be swept out his door and into a dangerous but grand adventure through the Lonely Mountains, where he must contend against all manner of enemies, from dragons, to giant spiders, hostile elves, ravenous wolves, and perhaps the most perilous of all a subterranean creature named Gollum from whom Bilbo wins a magical ring (the ring that rules them all) in a riddling contest!

Additional Notes:

Director Peter Jackson began shooting the two films in New Zealand in 3D in mid-March (05-30-11).
