There has been very little hitting the internet about the final The Hobbit film, The Battle of Five Armies. There is plenty of rumour and speculation surrounding the film but we could be ready for a teaser trailer at Comic-Con this coming weekend.
The above image appeared from the Comic-Con site showing Gandalf and Bard in the midst of a battle. Gandalf notably has his new staff which is the one Radagast has been using in the previous films. This is also his Fellowship staff of course so shows a nice little connection between the two film series.
Peter Jackson mentioned a few weeks ago now that the full trailer wouldn’t be coming out until later in the year, nearer October would be a good bet. However about this time last year we were teased with images and a trailer for Desolation of Smaug and Comic-Con does seem like the best bet for a reveal.
I can’t wait to see how they deal with the battle itself and of course we have the White Council versus the Necromancer to look forwards to as well! In other news I have begun to get back into The Hobbit: Strategy Battle Game and have been painting up Dwarves and Goblins. The system is great and I don’t know why I dropped it in the first place!
Look out for the new teaser trailer (possibly) this weekend.
