With the release of the new “Hobbit” app for Apple products, Warner Bros. has also opened the floodgates of new images and smacked viewers in the head with the ending of the first film, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.” The app came with a spoiler tag, but we know there are plenty of readers who are trying not to know every little detail, much less the breakdown of how these films become three movies from one book. Honoring those folks, we have hidden the unmistakable image after the break. It duplicates the promotional scroll released right before Comic-Con (take a gander here) when there where still two films. That confirmed the original break and this one, the new ending of the first film. Our image focuses only on the last scene. An argument could be made that the scroll isn’t definitive but it would be a weak and losing battle. If you click, you will be spoiled so proceed at your own risk; You will not be able to un-see the image.

The question fans should be asking is: What else will be in the film that isn’t shown in the scroll? Peter Jackson has been pretty clear in the media that he has a lot of material from the appendicies in “The Lord of the Rings,” that will be incorporated into the films. The scroll, showing mostly scenes from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit,” may be only part of what Jackson has in store for audiences. Since the story, taken from a 75-year-old children’s book can’t be spoiled, the way Jackson tells the story will be what the surprise factor is for audiences.
Back in early August, TheOneRing.net staff speculated on when the first film would end as part of a bigger story telling fans what they could expect from the newly revealed cinematic trilogy. (Read the still-relevant story right here.) Toward the end, several staffers nailed it. The article details the breakdown of the other two films as well.
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” is scheduled for world-wide release December 14 with a world premiere set for Wellington, New Zealand November 28. TheOneRing.net is sponsoring a tour group to the world premiere event and also including a trip to the Hobbiton Movie Set. Details are available right here.
