Official Synopsis:

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ – Listen To A Preview Of Billy Boyd’s “The Last Goodbye”

BillyBoyd

Here’s the preview of Billy Boyd’s, Pippin from the LOTRs trilogy, closing credit song that he co-wrote with The Hobbit producers Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens for ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.’ The song is titled “The Last Goodbye” and the wonderful peeps at WaterTower Music have released a preview of the song. The feels. 

Many sorrows I have seen
But I don’t regret
Nor will I forget
All who took that road with me

Night is now falling
So is this day
The road is now calling
And I must away

Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down
To the sea

To these memories I will hold
With your blessing I will go
To turn at last to paths that lead home
And though where the road then takes me I cannot tell
We came all this way….

Thorin: “Now, we defend it.” 

Bilbo: “When faced with death, what can anyone do?”

5 Reasons to purchase The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition

Ladies and Gentleman, today November 4, sees the extended edition release of WB Studio’s The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug and let me be one of the first people to tell you to go out and get it. As with all other EEs, extra content is a given and these extras do not disappoint! I believe both those familiar with the story and those that aren’t will be excited to see what adds up to be 25 minutes of both extended and extra scenes. The following are just 5 of the reasons I enjoyed this edition of the film and why I hope you will too!

1. More Beorn
In the original version of DOS we got just a glimpse of the skinwalker Beorn. He is in bear form when we first meet him and then human form when speaking with the company over a meal. Not only do you see more Beorn in this EE version, you get a better sense of his personality as well as see more of his surroundings (beautiful). There is a quite comical exchange between he and Gandalf concerning Bilbo and the dwarves that helps paint a clearer picture of his role in this story.

Beorn1

2. Mirkwood
As we learned in the original version, Mirkwood has a cursed stream running through it that has poisoned the forest and allowed darkness to enter. The additional footage added in this EE goes deeper into how sick the forest is and how much that sickness disorients the Company. You begin to feel as lost as they do. This really adds contrast to the next scene (from the original version) when Bilbo climbs to the top of one of the trees and is greeted by sunshine, butterflies and the clear path. For a moment they are found.

THE HOBBIT: DESOLATION OF SMAUG

***The Barrel Riding Scene is a favorite of mine***

The Hobbit_The Desolation of Smaug_Still (6)

3. Laketown
There are several extra nuggets throughout this segment that I found really added to the story. You begin to see who the town people are (which I don’t think even mattered to me in the original version), The Master and Alfred’s true motivations are surfaced, and more of the prophecy (and the town’s awareness of it) is revealed. All of it made me pay more attention to Laketown than I ever have.
The Hobbit_The Desolation of Smaug_Still (7)

4. The Desolation of Smaug
There is a bit more added as the Company approaches the overlook to Dale that really puts what happened there into perspective. I found it both a beautiful and heartbreaking scene.

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

5. Bilbo, Bilbo, Bilbo
I adore him, I always have BUT the extra Bilbo bits throughout this EE really made me stand up and pay attention to WHY I adore him. He rises to the challenge each and every time he is presented with one and while it is done with some questioning, it still gets done. Bilbo has saved the Company so many times by now it is clear that he was needed beyond his expert burglary. I, admittedly, am usually paying more attention to Smaug than Bilbo in the treasure room but during this viewing, I marveled at how, in the face of Smaug the Stupendous, Bilbo continues looking for the Arkenstone the entire exchange…amazing.

I could go on and on (and this doesn’t even include the two discs of additional extras) but I believe what I have shared gives you a good idea of what to expect from The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition. This article is based on the movies alone (though I know the book well) and fellow movie fans should consider adding this to their collections and enjoying all the extended goodness.

Until Battle of the Five Armies,
