Well, my friends, I got a text earlier saying that our tickets for the midnight premiere of The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug have been ordered! I have to say I am immensely looking forward to it. It is the second of The Hobbit films to come out directed by Peter Jackson. Also, it is going to be in 3D! Ahhhh, I can't contain how excited I am.
There are a few new characters that are going to make appearances in this movie who we have yet to see in action.
One is Tauriel, an elvish warrior. In the picture below she is joined by Legolas who is also making an appearance in the next movie. I have heard and read several discussions about her, some are skeptical about the addition of her character, while others are excited at the idea of a new elf.
The dwarves will be back in all of their glory and humor, to the delight of many fans. I am especially looking forward to the barrel scene (pictured below).
I hope this post satisfied the Hobbit fan inside you, or possibly encouraged you to look into reading the classic book and join the Hobbit fans worldwide in the theaters on December the 13th if you have not discovered a love of The Hobbit yet.
