The Hobbit‘s first television commercial was released today on the film’s official Facebook page.

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit,” the spot begins. The commercial features a few new clips including interaction between Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), and the always entertaining Gollum (voiced by Andy Serkis). Warner Bros. is primarily touting the fact that this film will show you how The Lord of the Rings story started.

The advertisement goes on to confirm that tickets go on sale November 7. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters December 14. Part two, The Desolation of Smaug, will be released December 13, 2013. There and Back Again, part three, will be released July 18, 2014. All three are directed by Peter Jackson. Watch the latest An Unexpected Journey trailer!

Over the weekend we learned that the host of The Colbert Report and full-time Tolkien fanboy Stephen Colbert will have a small cameo in one of the three Hobbit films. See five of the newest Hobbit photos in this report, and go here to catch up on all the latest news pertaining to Middle Earth.

We expect several more Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey television commercials to appear in the coming weeks. We have less than two months to go now!

    I’m sorry, but I’m reading The Hobbit right now, and I don’t understand the decision to split it into 2 movies, never mind 3. The plot is really not that dense.

      it’s a money thing, they know that people will pay to see all of them so might as well make an extra movie and get more money

      It’s not just the Hobbit. It’s also all the extra stuff in the appendixes at the end of LOTR, stuff that was going on during the time period of the Hobbit.
