Peter Jackson's epic return to Middle-Earth comes home on Blu-ray this March!

According to online retailer Amazon, Warner Brothers will release 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' on Blu-ray on March 19.

The movie is also expected to be released on Blu-ray 3D on the same date.

The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands. Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is set at $29.98.
