"The Hobbit: There and Back Again" was first published in 1937. And yet, somehow, I feel compelled to say Spoiler Alert!
Peter Jackson's unexpected journey actually leads to some wonderfully familiar places. When you don your giant grey wizard's hat and venture off to Middle Earth to see "The Hobbit" (in 24 fps, for the love of Smaug) there will be more than one occasion where you'll be cued to go "Oh, hey, I remember that from the other movies!"
Of course, the short, kid-friendly book is getting the trilogy treatment of "Lord of the Rings'" three weighty tomes, so there's more than enough wiggle room to throw in a number of callbacks – many of which never existed in the original texts.
We strongly endorse chugging a mug of miruvor (so long as you are over 21) when you come across each of these moments.
