The first Hobbit movie was a big hit across the globe. Now, it’s time to get excited about the second Hobbit movie, The Desolation of Smaug! You need to be up to speed with Bilbo and the gang so you are ready for the premiere on December 13.
A quick reminder on where the story left off – Bilbo, Gandalf the Grey and the Company of thirteen Dwarves barely escaped defeat at the hands of Azog and his army of Orcs. They now must continue the Quest for the Lonely Mountain and face their biggest foe to date, the dragon Smaug.
But don’t forget, Bilbo found the magical Ring of Power in Gollum’s Cave. The influence of the ring is already starting to make him act a little strange, but it may come in handy if he needs to sneak past some Elves or enter Smaug’s lair without being noticed.
Here’s some additional fun bits to get you excited for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug:
- Even though Hobbits are on the smaller side, and have really hairy feet, their courage never fails to surprise even the bravest of warriors.
- Smaug the Terrible, a giant fire-breathing dragon, lives among massive piles of gold and treasure. But this isn’t the kind of dragon you train and make your best friend. Touch one gold coin and you may end up a French fry.
- Legolas is back! Everyone’s favorite Elf from the Lord of the Rings films gets to show off his awesome bow and arrow skills once more… and the long, luxurious blond hair. He makes it work. Best. Elf. Ever.
- Dragon fire is going to look really cool in 3D!
December 13 is going to be EPIC!
