Warner Brothers and MGM have revealed an incredible banner over at Entertainment Weekly featuring 10 scenes from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s book will recognize that the scenes move from left to right in chronological order, most likely hinting at how much of the story will be included in the film (the story will continue on in next year’s The Hobbit: There and Back Again).
The above screen shot is not the entire banner. Hit the jump to view the full banner with more images of the dwarves, Galadriel, Elrond, Bilbo, Gollum, and even the character of Beorn (for those not in the know, it’s the bear). Check it out now!
