Hobbit trailer-dump

There's just so much Hobbity goodness out there.  The more I see of it the more I think they've probably got it about right.  The Hobbit was never a massive epic like LotR, but a light-hearted, grumpy, homely little tale.  They seem to have expanded it to dovetail better with the overall narrative of how The Hobbit fits int the bigger history of Middle Earth, but hey, I'm fine with that.

Anyway, here's the current amount of stuff that's getting me excited:

Bilbo Baggins, the original Hobbit hero, paving the way for the Fellowship of the Ring years later, putting bad ideas about 'adventuring' into the heads of impressionable young hobbits everywhere...  and I do rather like his patchwork dressing gown.  Quite enjoyed the comment about incineration in the contract as well :)

Also, someone found this, which is rather epic.  Elvish as it was originally imagined, spoken by the man who knew it first and best.
