If you are not already sick with anticipation for next week's release of The Hobbit, this will definitely do the trick. Featuring lots of previously unseen footage, as well as interviews with the cast and crew, check out this awesome tv special, "A Return To Middle Earth", after the jump..

The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.

Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever…Gollum.

Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters December 14th.

One of the few directors who completely respects the source material being worked with.

shut the [frick] up and get the [frick] out if you don't want to read the hobbit articles.

for some (seemingly most, from the comments), every bit of news gets us more and more excited for this.

Has a 73% on rotten tomatoes.

already sick with anticipation. I'm rereading the book just to help the time go by faster, but honestly that's just making it worse.

Frack Rotten Tomatoes! They probably never read the book :P

Too bad we'll have to wait for the third one to see a Hobbit movie rightfully dominate the Oscars (if the pattern from the last trilogy holds true). I don't get very excited about most movies that come out anymore, but I am excited about this one. I've waited since like high school (early 80s) when I first read The Hobbit to see it brought to life on the big screen (the animated film is fine, but I've wanted to see it done live-action), and my patience will soon be rewarded.
