Watch a Bunch of U.K. Prep School Kids Re-create 'The Hobbit'

Sep 24, 2012


The Good Schools Guide described London's Tower House School as "unashamedly a traditional boys' prep school but with a modern twist." You'll see what they mean in the below video where the boys recently got geeky over Peter Jackson's upcoming trek to Middle-earth, An Unexpected Journey. They re-created their version of the Tolkien's The Hobbit, and the adolescent crew oversaw everything about the 90-minute film.

It's a welcome change from the fan films we're used to seeing — because let's face it, sometimes watching a 40-year-old guy in tights just doesn't entertain like it should. The students — who will soon share alumni ties with the likes of Tom Hardy and Rob Pattinson — did a fantastic job from what we can tell, and the group's YouTube comments indicate that the full-length film should be online soon. Watch their account for the complete version and check out the trailer in the meantime to whet your appetite for Jackson's movie. It hits theaters on December 14, with The Desolation of Smaug arriving in 2013 and There and Back Again closing the trilogy in 2014. In the first film of Jackson's upcoming saga, the curious Bilbo Baggins heads to the Lonely Mountain with a group  of Dwarves to reclaim stolen treasure from the dragon Smaug. Watch the trailer for the billionth time over here.
