The Hobbit sends players of all ages on an
unforgettable interactive journey through the first two films in
The Hobbit Trilogy,
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming
The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Players will follow Bilbo
Baggins as he is recruited by the Wizard Gandalf to aid Thorin
Oakenshield and his Company of Dwarves. Bilbo leaves the comforts
of the Shire on a journey through Middle-earth to help the Dwarves
reclaim their lost Kingdom of Erebor within the Lonely Mountain.
Along the way, he is introduced to ravenous Trolls, dangerous Orcs
and, of course, Gollum and his precious Ring. Players will utilize
and combine the Dwarves’ unique abilities – often with
hilarious results – to solve the most diverse Quests of any
LEGO videogame to date.
The Hobbit Trilogy is a production of New Line Cinema and
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM), with New Line managing
production. Warner Bros. Pictures is handling worldwide
theatrical distribution, with select international territories as
well as all international television distribution being handled by
MGM. The second film in the Trilogy, “The Hobbit: The
Desolation of Smaug,” was released worldwide beginning
December 13, 2013.
