Peter Jackson's long-awaited big-screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth fantasy adventure is now on Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD. The Hobbit follows the adventures of the diminutive Hobbit Bilbo Baggins (played by Martin Freeman) as he journeys with a group of 13 Dwarves to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. On the way, they must battle treacherous Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and sly Sorcerers. And when Bilbo gains possession of Gollum's (the returning Andy Serkis) "precious" ring, the fate of Middle-earth hangs in the balance. The epic film also features returning The Lord of the Rings cast members Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving and Elijah Wood.
