Fans of Lord of the Rings rejoice! New Line Cinema has just unveiled the teaser trailer for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

The Peter Jackson flick is slated to hit theaters on December 14th in 2D, 3D, and IMAX formats and from the look of the clip, it’s going to be amazing.

Per the synopsis, “Bilbo Baggins 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, 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” stars Elijah Wood, Hugo Weaving, Orlando Bloom, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett, and Ian McKellen.
