The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – Trailer
The first trailer of the second chapter of The Hobbit saga arrived today and I am giddy:
Bilbo Baggins (Freeman) continues his journey with the Wizard Gandalf (McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. The images show the travel through Mirkwook until they reach the Lonely Mountain, and we have our first clear glimpse of the dragon Smaug.
