That’s right, it is finally here, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is available for purchase today on Blu-Ray and DVD from your local retailer. I am STILL so upset that we never made it to the theater to see this because the whole family ended up sick. But guess what, VUDU has the movie available for rental and purchase ( digital copies rock) and we will be having an awesome family movie night soon.
What is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey?
I suspect you may have been living under a rock if you haven’t hear of this movie, but I forgive you. Check out this awesome press snippet to learn more.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic adventure follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an amazing 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 thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Sorcerers.
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the first of a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
