It's been a turbulent trek for The Hobbit over the past two years (or so equated by Shire-reckoning). With a game of musical director's chair, a bankruptcy, a lawsuit, a stomach ulcer, an industrial dispute and that case of alleged animal abuse, we're lucky to be getting a single Hobbit film from director Peter Jackson, let alone an unexpected trilogy. Now with those problems resolved, there only remains one obstacle to overcome, and that's Bilbo's perilous quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the dragon Smaug.

Not familiar with the story? Don't cry your nachos out just yet. "Short cuts make for long delays," but in this case, a shortcut is just what you need to hone your Tolkien knowledge in time for the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey this December 14. Flip through our key character guide to familiarize yourself with some of Middle-earth's most Tookish residents and may the hair on your toes never fall out...
