J.R.R. Tolkien's famous characters hop from page to screen in this animated prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Hobbit Bilbo Baggins's quiet life changes forever when wizard Gandalf and a band of dwarves employ him on a quest for treasure. Throughout a long journey, Bilbo battles goblins, trolls, a dragon and the brooding Gollum -- and holds the fate of Middle Earth in his hands. Orson Bean voices Bilbo and John Huston voices Gandalf.
