0:08 - Some wondered how characters from 'The Lord of the Rings', like Elijah Wood's Frodo Baggins would be included in 'The Hobbit' since they do not appear in the film. That question is answered quickly as it appears the story will be told to Frodo by old Bilbo Baggins (Ian Holm) that we've come to know from the original films. Will characters like Orlando Bloom's "Legolas" be seen the same way or will they be seen as younger versions of themselves in the actual Hobbit story?

0:22 - Martin Freeman left the set of 'The Hobbit' in New Zealand during filming in order to return to his role as "Doctor Watson" in the BBC show 'Sherlock'. This hiatus gave Peter Jackson and his crew time to begin the editing process of the two films. (this could go anywhere, just put it here since it's the first time we see him)

0:35 - 'The Hobbit' was one of the first times dwarves were not treated as evil creatures in literature. Author J.R.R. Tolkien gave them honorable and sometimes comedic qualities in order to endear them to the reader.

0:49 - Author J.R.R. Tolkien used song in 'The Hobbit' often to give exposition to the story and enact a sense of mood. This song, "Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold" tells the history of the dwarves.

1:24 - There are many scenes connecting 'The Hobbit' to 'The Lord of the Rings', including this scene with Bilbo looking at the broken Narsil sword, which is reminiscent of Frodo discovering the same sword in 'The Lord of the Rings'.

01:29 - Cate Blanchett returns as "Galadriel". Gandalf is absent from much of the book version of 'The Hobbit', but his journey with the White Council will undoubtedly facor heavily in the two-part film.

1:41 - Another moment of nostalgia for 'The Lord of the Rings' fans as Bilbo unsheaths "Sting", the sword that he will one day pass on to Frodo.

1:58 - The dwarves battle a group of trolls, one of their first major battles in the book.

2:11 - The moment Bilbo finds the ring that plays so heavily in 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.

2:23 - The moment fans have all been waiting for, the return of Andy Serkis as "Gollum". In addition to reprising his role of "Gollum", Andy Serkis served as 2nd Unit Director on the films.
