Prepare for the end with 'The Hobbit' teaser
First seen in the hallowed halls of Comic-Con, the first teaser trailer for Peter Jackson’s final movie set in Middle Earth, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, has hit the wider world. Get ready for some nostalgia.
The trailer, which finds everyone suiting up for a final confrontation with the dragon Smaug, promises a climactic end to the three-part series. Gandalf, Biblo, Legolas, and others prepare for war, while we get brief glimpses of Smaug’s power—and even a wink from Sauron. Most notably, the teaser features “Edge of Night,” which was sung by Billy Boyd (Pippin) during The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. We’re not entirely sure, but we think that means this film’s Battle of the Five Armies will be at least as awesome as that film’s Battle of the Pelennor Fields. In other words, be excited.
