The Hobbit's are coming to Wellington.

Wellington will roll out the red carpet once again on November 28, when the world premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is held at The Embassy theatre.

The film is the first of two multimillion-dollar Hollywood blockbusters to be released by Oscar-winning director Sir Peter Jackson, telling the story of hobbit Bilbo Baggins' quest into the heart of a dragon's treasure-laden lair.

A spokesman for the film said it was hoped that the principal cast for the first film would all attend the Wellington premiere, including lead actor Martin Freeman, and Lord of the Rings stars Sir Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom and Andy Serkis.

Other big names who could also walk the Courtenay Place red carpet include Elijah Wood who has reprised his role as Frodo Baggins, and Cate Blanchett who plays the elf Galadriel.
