Barliman's Chat We’ll be hosting a LIVE trailer chat in the Barliman’s chatrooms. Join us in the chat early (people are already starting to gather even though the trailer debuts at 9am) and help us keep an eye out for the first post!

Many people are asking us where the trailer will debut. We do not yet know precisely where the launch will occur (or which media outlet will accidentally leak it first). When we do, we will let you know!

However, we do suggest keeping an eagle eye on the following in the meantime:

* The official Hobbit movie facebook page.
* Peter Jackson’s Facebook page.
* The Warner Bros. Youtube channel
* The Apple trailers page.

And remember, you can join us right now and chat with fellow fans about your anticipation and expectations through any of the following…
