When the first trailer for The Hobbit came out, I didn’t feel compelled to write about it. I was actually really disappointed. Yes, a lot of people enjoyed the dwarf tune being sung throughout the entirety of the teaser – I was not one of those people. It seemed to me like filler back up with an authentic melody, and not enough real content. Well the new trailer that recently came out… it did it for me. December 14 couldn’t come sooner.
I’m back to being excited about orcs, trolls, and wizards. I want nothing more than to see hobbits, dwarves, and elves working together again. What Jackson did with The Lord of the Rings trilogy was give us a living, breathing world to revel in. Middle Earth – it didn’t look like a Hollywood set, because it wasn’t – the whole of it was shot in New Zealand, and that same gesture has been carried out with The Hobbit.
More so than an authentic Middle Earth to fulfill my nerd cravings, I’m so freaking excited to see two of my favorite actors back on the screen again. In all her glory, Cate Blanchett will be returning to play the elf, Galadriel. And one who appears on cinema far less frequently, Ian McKellen will be returning as the hero of the saga – Gandalf. Okay so maybe not the hero, but definitely everyone’s favorite character. He made “fly, you fools” an immortally famous line, and I’m not the only one who drops the quote all the time. And then there’s the lesser known quote: “All we have to decide is what to do with the time given to us.”
I put the new trailer below. What do you think banterers, is this new trailer more of a cause to get excited than the last one?
