Elijah Wood, who will be reprising his role of Frodo Baggins in The Hobbit, said a few weeks ago that we can expect to get our first look at the films when The Adventures of Tintin opens in the US on December 21.
Now Warner Bros. has confirmed that the first trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will play with Tintin starting next Wednesday and there’s a good chance it’ll appear online next week too.
The Hobbit follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen), Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild (Richard Armitage). Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to open December 14, 2012 and will be followed a year later by The Hobbit: There and Back Again on December 13, 2013.
