The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the first of the three parts in which it was divided the novel The Hobbit, by the British writer J.R.R. Tolkien for a movie adaptation.
An elderly hobbit by the name of Bilbo Baggins, who is about to turn 111 years, decided to write to his nephew, Frodo, the full story about his unexpected journey that he embarked sixty years previous. He begins telling the story of the amazing Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, under the Lonely Mountain, where the dwarves mined precious metals under the reign of the king, Thrór. However, such wealth aroused the greed of Smaug, the largest of the North dragons, and attacked Erebor and the City of the Valley, driving the dwarves out of their kingdom and claiming it as his own, and seizing the enormous treasure hidden inside its walls. Since then, the Dwarves of Erebor became a wandering people and wandered through many lands, but never forgot the attack of Smaug and the old kingdom that belonged to them. After telling the story of Erebor, Bilbo goes on to relate his adventures, which began years ago when, in a quiet morning while smoking in front of his hobbit-hole, he meets the wizard Gandalf the Grey.
Gandalf was looking for someone adventurous, but Bilbo flatly refuses, as well as the adventures hates all hobbits of the Shire. However, not to be rude to the magician, invites him for tea tomorrow in the afternoon, before going home hastily.
In the afternoon of the next day, Bilbo hardly remembers what happened the previous day when he suddenly hears Gandalf calling at the door. Quite perplexed, see how many dwarves have at home waving as he does not want the thing. Finally, Gandalf comes with a dwarf who appears to be of high rank, and who turns out to be nothing more and nothing less than Thorin Oakenshield, the grandson of Thrór and next in line for the throne.Thorin and the twelve dwarves who have come with him request his help due to Gandalf’s recommendation, as they want to get their kingdom back. Bilbo can barely stand to hear that they want to bring it to an adventure and escape to hisroom to sleep not long after the dwarves finish explaining the plan.
Bilbo wakes up the next morning with the thinking that the visit of the dwarves was just a dream, to find that last night he left a note saying that if he wanted to take the job of their Bulgar, to meet with them OUT OF Bag End(?) Without knowing himself what he does, a strange feeling adventurous incites him out of his hole and hastily runs towards the destination to join the company of Thorin. There, with some regret, discover that most of the dwarves did not think that he would dared to join them and had made a bet that earn Balin and Gandalf quite the sum of money, confident in the hobbit.
The first problem arises through the Forest of Trolls, where the thirteen dwarves are caught by three trolls named Berto, Tom and Guille. Bilbo, despite shaking from head to toe, manages to entertain them enough until dawn, when Gandalf exposes them to sunlight and they turn to stone. Not far away are the three trolls lair, where Gandalf takes a sword that had stolen the trolls; and delivers a small dagger Bilbo (which puts the Dart name), which is illuminated when orcs nearby. Meanwhile, Thorin takes Orcrist. Near the ford of Bruinen, the group is one day suddenly with Radagast the Brown, a magician of the Order of the Istari, which Gandalf and other wizards belongs. Radagast Gandalf tells fearfully in Greenwood the Great, where he lives, evil is returning to the forest because a mysterious necromancer installed on Dol Guldur, an ancient fortress that belonged to Mordor, now in ruins, built before the second defeat of the Dark Lord. Just then, a group of orcs in Wargs mounted attacks the group, which escapes the secret valley of Rivendell thanks to Radagast distracting and a group of elves suddenly appears.
In Rivendell, Elrond, Lord of the elves, welcomes the company of Thorin, but the dwarfs are not very comfortable there because in the past, King Thranduil (from Mirkwood) did not help when he fell Mountain Erebor before the dragon Smaug. Galadriel (Lady of Lórien), and Saruman the White (leader of the istari magicians) are also found in Rivendell, because they are aware of the evil that has emerged in the Black Forest. So in Rivendell white council between Elrond, Galadriel, Gandalf and Saruman occurs. Gandalf suspects the Necromancer is none other than Sauron, since it was not completely destroyed due to the loss of single ring by Isildur. However, the view prevails Saruman, and believes that the One Ring is lost forever down the river Anduin sea, adding that the Necromancer is surely the witch king with a new offensive. Meanwhile, at Amon Sul, the orcs who had attacked Thorin and company in the ford of the river Bruinen warn his master Azog that the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield is alive. Several centuries before, Thorin had seriously injured Azog, at the Battle of Nanduhirion front of the mines of Moria, and Azog swore revenge on him since. In Rivendell, Thorin, Bilbo and the twelve dwarves start again as Gandalf continues on the council. To continue the journey must cross the dangerous Misty Mountains, where a stormy day on they witness an impressive battle between stone giants. To shelter from the titanic battle, take refuge in a cave. Bilbo, after seeing the dangers of the mountains, believes he has seen too much and prepares to return home on their own while the dwarves sleep. Bofur however finds out, and how you believe in it, Bilbo decides to stay. However, Thorin, the hobbit who does not like, believes that Bilbo is not interested in the issue and will only be a hindrance.
At that time, a crack opens in the cave and many goblins come out to meet them and capture the group, because the cave was one of many inputs of a system goblin tunnels.Bilbo and Thorin and Company are taken to the Great Goblin, who accuses them of wanting to steal and kill them. At that time, Gandalf appears and kill the goblin chief and some more. Thorin, Gandalf and the dwarves fled precipitately, but Bilbo falls and leaves the group, falling into a cave whose floor is a mysterious ring. Bilbo saved so without further and reach an underground lake, where Gollum, an old hungry creature who speaks with such a “treasure”, proposes you play puzzles. If Bilbo wins, Gollum will show off the tunnels, but if the winner was Gollum, the hobbit would eat. The two go throwing strangely similar riddles and Bilbo finally nervously fiddles with the Ring he keeps in his pocket, wondering to himself, “What I have in my pocket?”. Gollum interprets it as a riddle, and no acertarlo, instead of fulfilling his promise is preparing to go to his island in the lake, where he keeps his “treasure”, a magic ring that makes it invisible to whom it is put on the finger pretending to kill Bilbo by surprise. Not finding him, Gollum, very upset, he discovers that Bilbo has his ring, which should fall out while hunting a goblin. Gollum is about to kill Bilbo, but he sees him from afar and, incidentally, put a hand to his pocket, he slips the ring finger and Bilbo discovers that the item makes it invisible. Bilbo advantage of this property to follow Gollum and look for any output. At one point, he is tempted to slay Gollum with Sting sword, but a compassionate feeling makes you pity him.
Bilbo meets again with the group of Thorin to hear their voices, but do not tell anyone about the discovery of the ring. After a chase through the underground Goblin-town, the company of Thorin, Bilbo and Gandalf comes out only to fall far field of a herd of huge direwolves, it gets to chase them immediately. The fifteen members get into a fir next to a cliff to save himself from the Wargs when they discover that the pack was led by the Azog orc, who was in search of Thorin. Nothing seen, and Thorin Azog out to meet to meet, but Thorin get hit the orc him to the ground. An unexpected stroke of courage appears in Bilbo, which lowers the tree also to protect Thorin despite the fear he feels. The other dwarves continue to face the other orcs Azog in a desperate fight. Luckily, a group of eagles, friends of Radagast, down from the heights of the mountains and picking members Thorin’s company, brings them to a safe place that faces east, on the Grand River and the Black Forest, divisándose, far away, the Lonely Mountain. The group is already in the Wilderness, and Thorin, who was unconscious by the fall, revives and apologizes to Bilbo by their distrust, full of gratitude for having saved the hobbit. While travelers contemplate their fate, a thrush takes off and reaches the Lonely Mountain, where it captures a snail and strikes against a stone to swallow. The echo of the blows resonates inside the mountain where the dragon Smaug wakes giving way to the movie.
That’s all, hope you liked it!
