Following last night‘s announcement that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released in Extended Edition Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD sets on November 5, we have a deleted scene that will be included in the special features. Take a look at this scene featuring Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and Elrond (Hugo Weaving) engaged in a conversation about whether or not Bilbo should be on this arduous journey.
The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome Dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the Wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of 13 Dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild, through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins, Orcs and deadly Wargs, as well as a mysterious and sinister figure known only as the Necromancer.
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 ingenuity 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 was released December 14th, 2012 and stars Ian McKellen,Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt,Stephen Hunter. The film is directed by Peter Jackson.
