It won't be long now until we head back into the Misty Mountains with Bilbo Baggins, and the gang are already gathering in New Zealand for The Hobbit's world premiere. And to top it all off, a brand new clip from the film has made its way online. Woo!

The sneak peek features Ian McKellan and Martin Freeman talking orcs and goblins as GandaIf presents Bilbo with Sting. No, the Police aren't involved in this one, we're talking the iconic sword that Frodo wields in the Mines of Moria, y'know, the one that turns blue when the bad lads are nearby. It may be only 40 seconds long but we're sure that fans won't be complaining.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits Irish cinemas on December 13th.
