Peter Jackson's first Hobbit movie is to receive its world premiere[首映] in November. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will debut at the Embassy Theatre in Wellington on November 28, two weeks ahead of its official opening. It is hoped that the majority of the principal cast members[演艺人员] will be free to attend.
"I know I speak for a company of hobbits, dwarves[矮人], elves and orcs[半兽人] when I say that this city holds a special place in all our hearts," said Jackson in a statement. "We cannot think of a more perfect way to send The Hobbit off into the world than to celebrate with a huge party here in Wellington, where the journey began."
