The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Official Trailer

The official trailer for the next installment of The Hobbit trilogy has dropped . . . The Desolation of Smaug.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug teaser poster

This movie introduces many new characters, most who aren’t even in The Hobbit book, as well as the titular Smaug played by Khan himself, Benedict Cumberbatch.  This part of the trilogy will cover the journey through Mirkwood, meeting of the wood elves, the journey to Esgaroth, some Necromancer nonsense, and most likely the first encounter with Smaug if not the downfall of Smaug and destruction of Esgaroth.

In the trailer you get to see Beorn (and in bear form), Legolas (son of Thranduil), Tauriel (made up to make it less of a sausagefest), Azog (the manufactured nemesis from part 1), Bard the Bowman, and of course . . . Smaug!
