See cute trailer for a 90-min Hobbit fan film made by school kids

The first installment of Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy won't be out until December, but some English schoolboys just couldn't wait that long. So they made their own Hobbit flick, and put an enthusiastic little trailer on the internet.

The students of Tower House School in London (a prep school which, by the way, once educated the likes of Tom Hardy and Robert Pattinson) decided they wanted to take their own journey into Middle-earth, so they got a little money together, made some costumes and crafted a 90-minute adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's tale of a Hobbit, a wizard and 13 dwarves. The film premiered for parents, school staff and the like last week at London's Curzon Renoir Cinema, but you can see one minute of the footage right here, right now.

According to the comments on the film's YouTube page, there are no plans to release the whole thing publicly, but based on this, it would definitely be fun to see what they made of the rest of the story. Imagine what their Smaug looks like.
