The Hobbitt

The Hobbit" is considered to be one of the best books written by J.R.R. Tolkien. Created in the tradition of a fairy tale, with author's effort to integrate two interests, stories for his three sons and a mythology of England, the book has had a corner in hearts of many readers since it was first published in September, 1937. Being Tolkien's first published work, "The Hobbit" is often marketed as a prelude to his masterpiece "The Lord of the Rings", published 17 years later.
Bilbo Baggins lives his calm and peaceful life in a comfortable hole near the bustling hobbit village of Hobbiton, smoking a pipe, drinking good bear and looking for a meal. His life style and interests are typical for hobbits - small and chubby people about half the size of humans who usually dress in bright colors and wear no shoes, because their large feet grow thick brown hair, and feel great love to good food and drink. In the beginning of the story Bilbo has a very weak character; his main features are shyness and fear susceptibility. Like most of his kind, he is fond of gardening and doesn't wish any excitement or adventure.
The Hobbitt Movie - Part 1 is scheduled for release on December 28, 2011 and this is the cast so far:

  • Bilbo Baggins - Martin Freeman
  • Gandalf - Sir Ian McKellen
  • Gollum - Andy Serkis
