Warner Bros has released a new 3 minute sneak peek from Peter Jackson’s upcoming sequel The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The teaser shows Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) entering Smaug’s lair. As much as I loved the first film, there was an awful lot of exposition, and this one looks set to bring some major action. All of the films in the LotR/Hobbit franchise have been huge blockbuster hits, and this one looks set to keep up too, with some theatres having already sold out for the first few showings. The film is scheduled for release on December 13.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all — a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself — the Dragon Smaug.
