Here's a not-too-unexpected bit of news: The first TV spot for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is out!

And from the sweeping views of Middle-earth to the sight gag of Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins riding along as he reluctantly embarks on what's to be the adventure of a lifetime—all 30 seconds are worthwhile!

The first of Peter Jackson's three films bringing J.R.R. Tolkien's epic to cinematic life doesn't hit theaters until Dec. 14 (advance tickets sales start Nov. 7), so we warn you. 

This teaser will only make you that much more excited.
