The Hobbit


Rated: PG-13

Following the huge success of the Lord of the Rings movies, The Hobbit was bound for the silver screen. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the first film in the the forthcoming trilogy. Like the beloved book, the film features all of your favorite Hobbits and Dwarves, as well as the wise old wizard, Gandalf the Grey. Battles with scary Goblins, Orcs, and other enemies make this film better suited for older kids.
