LEGO The Hobbit sends players of all ages on an unforgettable interactive journey through the first two films in The HobbitTrilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Players will follow Bilbo Baggins as he is recruited by the Wizard Gandalf to aid Thorin Oakenshield and his Company of Dwarves.
