Hello Lovely Readers,
I had a review all set to go today, then the new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug came out. So I figured I would save the review for tomorrow and share the trailer. I cannot wait for December to see this movie. Although as cool as everything looks, I think we are starting to see some more changes to the original Hobbit plot (although some of it could be from the Appendices by JRR Tolkien, which I have not and will not read). I think as much as I usually am a purest on movies adapted from books, I trust Peter Jackson, and I think it could be an amazing movie. Check out the trailer below.
I have to say I am LOVING Smaug’s voice. They deepened and roughed up Benedict Cumberbatch’s already amazing voice. I am so looking forward to him and Bilbo talking in the treasure room. Also I am excited for more or Legolas’s father, Thranduil (played by Lee Pace, who we only really glimpsed in the first movie). Most of all I am looking forward to a female character, the new elf (Jackson’s creation), Tauriel.
What do you guys think? Are you excited, cautiously optimistic, or dreading the new movie?
Until next time,
