Fresh off the new The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug poster that debuted earlier this morning, Warner Bros. has released two new stills. The first features Bilbo (Martin Freeman) frolicking in what appears to be pure bliss. Since the world of The Hobbit is not always so rosy, this is a nice shot featuring a Hobbit at play.
Next up is one of our first looks at Evangeline Lilly and her turn as the Elven warrior Tauriel. She is an addition to the Tolkien world, and we think a welcome one.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug trailer has yet to show us much of Tauriel, perhaps the next one? Please Peter Jackson, we want to see our favorite Lost cast member in action in Tolkien’s universe!
Look for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in theaters December 13.
