The cast Jackson has to fill the roles of these lovable and memorable characters, giving the film the feel that everyone expects from this kind of movie. Martin Freeman gave young Bibo Baggins that if factor of venerability, courage, adventure, and innocence that gave his character what the audience can relate to as well as sink their teeth into the story line.
