The Hobbit Extended Edition to Show in Theaters this October

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Ready to go There and Back Again?

Missing Middle Earth? You have a chance to get your fix when The Hobbit trilogy returns to the big screen this year.

Although the final chapter of Peter Jackson’s epic trilogy was released last year, all three films will be shown in theaters in October, in their glorious Extended Editions, featuring a new introduction from Jackson himself, Collider reported.

Fans can relive the adventures of Bilbo Baggins and the Company of Thorin Oakenshield in An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug, and The Battle of the Five Armies along with loads of extra footage. The majesty of Middle Earth is best enjoyed on the big screen, and this will be a great opportunity to watch all the additional scenes as they were meant to be seen.

Here are the details we have so far, courtesy of Far Away Entertainment:

Fathom Events and Warner Bros. are partnering to present the extended editions of all three Hobbit movies. Shown over three nights, the epic Peter Jackson trilogy will be the first time the extended editions have ever been released in theatres. The films follow hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), who is convinced by the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) to accompany thirteen dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), on a quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch).  Also included will be an exclusive introduction by director Peter Jackson. First night showing starts Monday, October 5th, 2015 at 7:30pm local.

This is the available information so far, but we are sure to learn more once the official press release comes out. But for now, Hobbit fans may rejoice at the chance of seeing their favorite characters in the cinema once more.
