In the book by Tolkien, we are introduced to the Hobbits homeland better known as the New World. In this world, we, as the readers are taken into the vast imagery that the author seemingly deals us with (Shanee 1). The Hobbits are a peaceful people and among its people is Bilbo Baggins our main character. It is Bilbo Baggins a ponderous, worrisome Hobbit that is consequently placed in a war by his convincing and powerful friend Gandalf, a wizard. Gandalf asks Bilbo to join in an adventure to which, Bilbo declines, reluctant to leave the safety and comfort of his hobbit-hole. The next day, he is visited by dwarves who believe Bilbo can be of use to them in their journey to the Lonely Mountain to reclaim their ancestral treasure, now in the possession of Smaug the dragon. Bilbo realizes that Gandalf had represented him to the dwarves as a burglar. He reluctantly agrees to go, but he changes his mind the next morning. Inevitably this all changes and Bilbo decides to go. As the landscape becomes less hospitable and the group faces hunger, bad weather, and attacks from hostile creatures, we are taken through the setting of all different places within the New World making it seemingly impossible to miss the dramatic imagery given (Edwards 2).
For the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the filmmaker Peter Jackson, accurately depicts in the setting in The Hobbit in grandiose detail.
