'The Hobbit' Retrospective Trailer Relives Entire Middle-Earth Legacy
While the music video for Billy Boyd's credits song for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies proved to be a touching retrospective look at both the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy (concluding next month), a legacy trailer has just debuted looking back at both of these long adventures across Middle-Earth. Even though the prequel trilogy hasn't lived up to the quality of Peter Jackson's original ambitious jaunt into the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, there's no doubt that the filmmaker has achieved something massive and grand by giving fans the adaptations that most of them have always wanted. Watch!
Here's the legacy trailer for The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings from Warner Bros. Pictures:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in 48FPS 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. The Battle of the Five Armies arrives in theaters in HFR, IMAX & 3D on December 17th later this year. It all ends in December - see you then.
