Customer Reviews


I have watched this movie countless times and I still cannot get enough! As a child I was captivated by the characters and their adventure long before I ever knew of Tolkien's genius or any of his other works. As an adult, I continue to enjoy this film, and appreciate it on many levels. I've read The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and I appreciate film and animated adaptations of these stories. This interpretaion of The Hobbit has something to offer everyone. It is visually stunning and truly captures the essence of the book.

I am thrilled to finally see this film available on iTunes so that it can be enjoyed by a wide audience. This is a wonderful introduction to the works of Tolkien and his 'Middle Earth'.

As a child I had watched this movie a billion times now that the acuall movie is coming out I fuigured I would relive some childhood memories! I Love this movie!

One of my favorite childhood movies, that is still magical today...

I watched this movie so much as a child growing up in the 80's, I actually wore out my old VHS. This animated film inspired me to read the book at a young age, which in turn inspired me to read LOTR's at age 12. This film was amazing as a child, and holds up surprisingly well. If you are a Tolkien fan of any form, watch this film and get transported to Middle Earth again...
