The excitement is building for the December 13 release of the next chapter in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy as the second trailer has premiered. Just yesterday, we featured the new Bilbo banner and the Thranduil banner… and now we’ve got over two minutes of fresh footage from one of the most anticipated movies of the year!
Martin Freeman is back as Bilbo Baggins, who continues his adventure with the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) as their effort continues to aid the dwarves in their struggle to regain control of their home from the evil dragon Smaug.
The latest teaser gives us much more than the first The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug trailer. There are more images of Orlando Bloom’s Legolas and we hear from Evangeline Lily’s fiery elf as well… and it seems that Legolas has “grown quite fond” of her.
And last but not least… a certain ring makes its appearance! Although, it doesn't appear that Bilbo is ready to share that news with Gandalf yet.
