Inching nearer and nearer to its much-awaited release, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” dropped a brand new TV spot to whet anticipating theatergoers appetites on Tuesday (October 23).

The half-minute offering features narration directly from the original J.R.R. Tolkien novel for the film finding Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) continue his journey to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom.

Per the synopsis: “The 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.”

Also starring Elijah Wood, Evangeline Lilly, Cate Blanchett and Orlando Bloom, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is slated to hit theaters on December 14.
