The Hobbit Scrolling Poster

Are you the sort of Peter Jackson fan who loves nothing more than to pore over every minute detail of imagery from his adventures in Middle-earth? Then today is your lucky day! For Team Hobbit has put out a giant, scrollable poster featuring several art scenes from the movie.

While we've seen a lot of these people before, one of the segments is exciting, as it features a character not yet seen in the trailers or other imagery. That would be Ian McKellen's Gandalf with the shape-shifter Beorn, who takes the form of a bear.

As for the rest, it’s mostly what you’d expect: lots of Martin Freeman getting into scrapes as Bilbo Baggins, the dwarves at various stages of their quest and, because it wouldn’t be Middle-Earth without them, Galadriel (Cate Blanchett), Elrond (Hugo Weaving) and everyone’s favourite troublemaker, Gollum (Andy Serkis).

Jackson and some of his team will be presenting the movie at Comic-Con, where it faces its toughest ordeal yet from the franchise’s fans. Naturally Empire will be there to bring you all the happenings…

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be out on December 14. The Hobbit: There And Back Again follows on December 13 next year.
