Frodo Baggins Stops By In New Images From The Hobbit
All Tolkien fans know that Bilbo Baggins is the focus of the journey to Middle Earth known as The Hobbit, but in Peter Jackson's three-part adaptation, Bilbo's nephew Frodo won't be absent either. We've known for a while now that Elijah Wood would be reprising his role as Frodo Baggins in the Hobbit trilogy, and he even popped up in one of the many video blogs Jackson has been posting from the set. But now we've got our first official look at Frodo back in action, as well as a bonus still of Bilbo for good measure. Click on either below to head to the original source.
Comic Book Movie picked up the stills from the Brazilian site Cinemarcado, and if you click the images you can find three more, including a new shot of Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo with his trusty sword Sting, and Gandalf and Bilbo chatting on the lush set in the Shire. Don't get too excited about this Frodo spotting, though-- word has it he'll just appear in a frame story to kick things off and link the actions of The Hobbit to The Lord of the Rings. But then again, now that there are three Hobbit movies to come, maybe they'll find room for Frodo to pop up somewhere else.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set for release December 14, and has managed to snag that entire release date for itself, since everybody knows you don't mess with Peter Jackson when he's got Tolkien on his mind. Let us know if you're as excited for The Hobbit as you were for the Lord of the Rings films, and you can click here to learn pretty much everything you need to know about the movie.
