Check out my The Hobbit book summary and review that I created to help you understand the basics of this great book. The Hobbit is a series of three high fantasy adventure films directed by Peter Jackson. The three films are The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012), The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smog (2013), and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Arms (2014).

Movies by J.R.R. Based on Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit, large parts of the trilogy are inspired by the appendix to The Return of the King, which expands on the story told in The Hobbit, as well as new elements and characters written specifically for the film. Together they acted as a prequel to Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

The Hobbit

The screenplay was written by Fran Walsh, Filippa Boynes, Jackson and Guillermo del Toro, who were originally selected to direct before leaving the project. Sixty years before the beginning of The Lord of the Rings, films found a place in the fictional world of the Middle Ages, and Hobbit followed Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), whom magician Gandalf de Gray (Ian McKellen) believed to accompany the Thirteen.

Dwarfs, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), to recover the lonely mountain from Dragon Smag (Benedict Cumberbatch's voice). The films revolve around some elements of the novel and other source material, such as the investigation of Dolph Guldure Gandalf and the pursuit of Azog and Blog, who seek revenge against Thorin and his relatives.

The Hobbit book summary :

The Hobbit speaks of Bilbo Baggins ’journey when he embarks on the tedious task of conquering the lost dwarf kingdom of lonely mountains, Dragon Smag. Wizard Gandalf surprisingly introduces Bilbo to a group of thirteen dwarfs led by legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield.

Their journey takes them into the wild, through the haunted lands filled with orcs, deadly battles, giant spiders, shapeshifters and wizards. Bilbo Baggins also faces Gollum and acquires a magic ring that makes her wearer invisible. It was once forged by Sauron to seize power in Middle-earth.

In the end, Smaug is killed by the archer Bird, who is involved in a huge battle for the dragon's treasure. At the beginning of The Lord of the Rings story, Bilbo gives the ring to his nephew Frodo Baggins before revealing the real identity of Gandalf Ring.

Changes compared to the original book

Overall, the tonality of the film has changed significantly compared to the original book: although the original book is an adventure story for children with dragons and dwarves, the film primarily targets young and adults. Horror elements such as orcs or depictions of war take up a lot of space.

The setting of the film is much darker than that of the novel and is related to Lord of the Rings in its style with previous films. For economic reasons, the relatively young children’s book was expanded into three film sections with a total length of about eight hours.

There are more details in the film adaptation than in the original book. In the first part of the trilogy, for example, the orc Azog is not killed by Dine II Ironfoot in the Battle of Shadorivar Valley near Moria, but his left arm is severed by Thorin Oakenshield. He is portrayed as Thorin's adversary, whom Thorin only mistaken for dead.

The magician Radagust, who is only briefly mentioned in the book but has no presence, is given a major role, where he tells Gandalf, among other things, about his quest for dol guldure - a quest in which he is attacked by a ringwith. Also mentioned are briefly shown.

 The Toriel character is completely renewed, including a love story between him and Kylie. Other marginal characters besides the novel were also integrated into the plot. Also featured is Legolas, a popular character in the ring film, who is not mentioned at all in Little Hobbit's novel.

Other scenes are seen in Tolkien's novel but are presented differently in the film. This includes i.a. Scenes of the trolls' campfire, staying in Rivendale, where Saruman and Galladriel appear, which is different from the book, and the fight with the goblins and the next escape from the caves in the Misty Mountains.

There is also a deep connection with the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, especially from The Desolation of Smog, especially with the introduction of Dol Guldur's Necromancer (who is only mentioned in the book as going through Gandalf) - the resurrection of Souran and Nazgul.
