We've all seen the tale of Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but this December we're going to get to see Peter Jackson's gorgeous interpretation of how it all began.
The newest poster for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (above) was released on Saturday in honor of World Hobbit Day, since September 22 was both Bilbo and Frodo's bday.
Martin Freeman, who plays the titular protagonist, is

Naughty or nice, this Christmas will be a very good one for fans of the Lord of the Rings franchise.
It was rumored that the teaser trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit would be premiering with a one of December's upcoming blockbusters, but Elijah Wood has just confirmed it!
The actor, who is reprising his role as Frodo Baggins in the two-part prequel to the epic LOTR trilogy, told sources the teaser will be premiering in theaters on Dec. 21st before The Adventures of Tintin, explaining:

Ignore the expression on his face - we assure U, he's ECSTATIC!
Back in June, Elijah Wood spoke about The Hobbit, and called it incredible!

It's official then! This is so exciting!
Elijah Wood has already spoken out about the just-announced speculation that he will making an appearance in the upcoming, Peter Jackson-directed adaptation of The Hobbit, and confirmed that he's officially signed on to reprise his role as Frodo Baggins!
"We thought we were finished and the character doesn't even exist in [the book of] The Hobbit, so it was not even a pipe dream to imagine the possibility would be there for me to reprise the role of Frodo. But they've come up with something that I think is kind of interesting and I think very fitting that doesn't necessarily infringe upon the integrity of the original novel. It's great. I'm really excited. Those films marked a huge, massive experience in my life. It's been 11 years, basically, since I went to New Zealand, so it'll be a beautiful reunion and I'm just excited to go back and see everybody again. I think it'll [screen time] be relatively minimal. That's my impression. I actually haven't read anything yet. I haven't read a script. I have almost as much information as you guys have!"
We think that his appearance should be kept brief, but we think that it will be a lovely way to link this to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and we also agree that if done right, it definitely won't take away from the integrity of the book!
What do U think?? Are U excited for Frodo's return??

We like this idea! What a great way to link the films together!
Now that production is FINALLY underway on Peter Jackson's prequel to his Lord of the Rings series, The Hobbit, it sounds like yet another cast member from the original trilogy will be reprising his role!
Elijah Wood is reported to be portraying his role as Frodo Baggins in the opening sequence of the new film, reading a book that would re-introduce viewers to the story and the world all over again!
Lovely! Between he, Orlando Bloom and Cate Blanchett returning, we think that the The Hobbit will fit nicely as a companion to the other films!
What do U think?? Are U happy to see the return of Frodo??
