We recently saw a bunch of new images for The Hobbit appear recently from the new App, and with that mention was made of a new trailer.

Now we learn in a video message from Peter Jackson that the new trailer will debut - as expected - during "Hobbit Week," this coming Wednesday.

Tolkien Week marks the 75th anniversary of the publication of The Hobbit, and Peter Jackson announces that his contribution will be the new Hobbit trailer on the 19th. In addition, some special content will be shared with the fans.

Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf the Grey with Martin Freeman playing Bilbo Baggins.  

Also reprising their roles from “The Lord of the Rings” movies are: Cate Blanchett as Galadriel; Orlando Bloom as Legolas; Ian Holm as the elder Bilbo; Christopher Lee as Saruman; Hugo Weaving as Elrond; Elijah Wood as Frodo; and Andy Serkis as Gollum.
