Warner Bros. has revealed a massive banner promoting Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey as they prepare to hold court down at the San Diego Comic Con this Saturday, July 14. The banner first appeared at Entertainment Weekly and you can get a much larger look at it by clicking on the image above.

I have also cut it into six separate pieces and included those directly below. Just click on the first thumbnail to scroll through all six pieces.

It’s been so long since I read J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” that only pieces from the banner look familiar so I can’t tell if they tell the story in a linear narrative as told in the book and indicate a specific cut-off point for this first part of The Hobbit tale and where The Hobbit: There and Back Again will pick up next December. Anyone care to enlighten me?

SIDE NOTE: Did you notice the part where Gandalf is talking to Merida’s mom from Brave? Strange, eh?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters on December 14.
