Bilbo, Gandalf, Thorin and company return in this trailer for the upcoming second installment of The Hobbit trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug! This trailer shows off a couple of the new characters for the series, one from the books (Bard the Bowman, played by Luke Evans) and the other (Tauriel, played by Evangeline Lilly) made up for the sake of the movie. Still not sure about how I feel on that one, but hey it is show business, right? If they’ll bring back characters from the LOTR trilogy who never set foot in The Hobbit, why wouldn’t they bring in a completely made up character? Still on the fence about Legolas being involved, but he is technically old enough to have been around since even before then. We’ll see how it all pans out. This trailer is pretty awesome and there’s a neat treat at the end for those who felt cheated at the end of An Unexpected Journey. Enjoy!
