A new adaptation of the classic tale, The Hobbit. Bilbo Baggins is a comfortably well-off hobbit with a love for rousing adventure stories. So when Gandalf the wizard knocks at Bilbo’s door, bringing with him a company of dwarfs, and a contract for an adventure to recover the lost treasure of Lonely Mountain. Bilbo’s love of a good story gets the better of him, and before he knows it, he is off on a perilous quest encountering both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.
