The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the long-awaited prequel to the highly popular Lord of the Rings trilogy, is set to hit US theaters this December. Diehard fans can already enjoy some beautiful imagery from the film with The Hobbit Theme for Windows 7.
The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey follows lead character Bilbo Baggins, who is taken into an epic journey to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which had been once conquered by the dragon Smaug. Contacted unexpectedly by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo discovers himself becoming a member of a company of 13 dwarves driven by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Even though their ambition is to be found to the East beyond the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, they must first escape the goblin tunnels, the place where Bilbo meets with the creature that changes his life completely... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins more than just finds depths of guile and confidence that astonish even him, he also gets ownership of Gollum's "precious"... a rather simple, gold ring which is linked with the destiny of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo simply cannot attempt to appreciate.
The Hobbit Theme for Windows 7 includes ten high quality desktop wallpapers with characters from the upcoming movie. These are official wallpapers, many of which incorporate the movie's title within the design. The theme automatically changes your desktop background to a new image every 5 minutes.
