The End is Nigh: The Synopsis for ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’

It’s almost exhausting just to think about it, but Peter Jackson‘s bloated telling of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s “The Hobbit” will finally come to an end on December 17 when The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters and if the newly released synopsis for the film is to be believed it means it will include more than just walking…

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 massive ensemble cast sees Martin Freeman back as Bilbo, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Richard Armitage as the only dwarf you know by name Thorin Oakenshield, Orlando BloomLuke EvansEvangelline LillyLee PaceCate BlanchettHugo Weaving and Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Smawwwwwg.
