The Hobbit - Act I

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The "One Ring" series returns in a retelling of the classic tale "The Hobbit." Done in a storybook narrative, the first Act has Bilbo and his dwarven companions starting on their journey to steal back their treasure form the vile dragon Smaug. But will they survive long enough? With the wizard Gandalf on their side, of course they will! And don't worry, Sauron and Wayne are in there as well for fans of the older "One Ring" movies.

The plan is to make this a 3 part series, and I'm fully prepared to see it finished. The original version was one long movie, but when I got about 12 minutes in I realized it was way to long. So I split it up. Thanks to Scott Johnson of Extra Life (http://www.myextralife.com/) for doing the voice for Gandalf!

And on another note, earlier this year I started making comics on my site at http://comic.legendaryfrog.com. Check it out!

I feel bad for not reading the original version of "The Hobbit". Well, I saw this old cartoon version and all the movies in the recent series. Yes, they're not as good as "The Lord Of The Rings". I still really enjoyed this. I am so proud of myself that I recognized Tom Bombadil! You did the same thing the movie creators did.

They split it into a three part series! It's great to see characters like Gandalf. They weren't in your other series. I especially love the setup. Sauron looks better animated than ever!

sauron's Voice is AWFUL!

Love the blind guardian at the beginning XD

The best part of it is. Legendaryfrog beat Peter Jackson by 5 years!

Oh man I just saw that movie a few days ago in the theaters the parody is pretty much nailed it much like One Ring to rule them all did. Loved you're style back then and I still do now. Hey maybe you might wanna finish the second half sometime before the next one comes out?

Peter Jackson is late, Legendary Frog beat him by 5 years haha
