The Hobbit is a film series consisting of three high fantasy adventure films directed by Peter Jackson, based on the novel The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien.
The films take place in the fictional world of Middle-earth sixty years before the beginning of The Lord of the Rings and follow hobbit Bilbo Baggins, who is convinced by the wizard Gandalf the Grey to accompany thirteen dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on a quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug.
The films also expand upon certain elements from the novel and other source material, such as Gandalf’s investigation at Dol Guldur, and the pursuit of Azog and Bolg, who seek vengeance against Thorin and his ancestors.
The first film in the series premiered at the Embassy Theatre in Wellington, New Zealand on November 2012. One hundred thousand people lined the red carpet on Courtenay Place, and the entire event was broadcast live on television in New Zealand and streamed over the Internet. The second film of the series premiered at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California on December 2013. The third and final film premiered at Leicester Square in London on December 2014.
The series was one of the highest-grossing film series of all time. It was nominated for various awards and won several.
