Stephen Fry will play the greedy hogging Master of Esgaroth.

Yes, that guy.

Also, Conan Stevens from Game of Thrones will play the orc Azog.

I am not a fan of Stephen at all but will not let his role put me off watching the final film. Eagerly awaiting and this time I have read the book first

Early reports suggest Cumberbatch will voice the dragon character Smaug but the actor refused to specify his role, insisting, ?I can?t say at the moment, thank you very much.?

A red-faced Freeman later told reporters, ?I knew I was a sort of a big mouth but I didn?t realize to what extent I was a big mouth, and I?ve just ruined everything. I might not actually go back to a job ? they might have just sacked (fired) me.?

Lol Bilbo!

Also, there was a minor explosion in the workshop and two workers were sent to hospital, but neither have bad injuries and one is back to work already.

PS. Orlando Bloom as Legolas has now been confirmed by PJ. He also says that we'll see White Council, as well as attack on Dol Guldur.

Thanks so much Lorie for these shots.  Makes me excited about this movie.  Don't know what he's reading but this is how I'd picture Bilbo looking, flummoxed at the crowd in his hobitty hole.

To be honest I got surprised to see Evangeline Lilly playing a silvan elf. I thought she definitely could fit a small elvish role, but I didn't imagine it actually happening. And suddenly my imagination unfolds before my eyes. Lol!

I give you... Nori, Ori and Dori.


Quote:
These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other.

Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he?s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins.

Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it?s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal.

Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other ? and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide anyone who means harm to one of these brothers.

Wow, how did this thread get to 17 pages without anyone actually saying the plot of the movie?  Well done, Amber!

Just like LOTR's for me when I initially dreaded seeing what PJ would bring to the screen. I didn't even see FOTR until it had been out several months. 

With The Hobbit I was initially worried when I heard this was being made into two films but now, I'm happy to see PJ fleshing out some of the characters more and adding some of the back story.

According to Andy Serkis the first teaser trailers for the Hobbit will be out very soon, possibly next Christmas already.

Also, here's the 4th production video for you to enjoy.

Thanks so much Lorie for posting that link.  I've gone from being luke-warm to red-hot to see this movie.  Once the editing is completed and music added, this should be as magical as the LOTR movies.

I know what you mean, Romeny. When PJ got back involved in the directing and I started to see the "behind the scenes" snippets on PJ's facebook page....the exciting really got going. :-)

Can't wait to see how good Smaug will be....

The films will show White Council as well as attack on Dol Guldur (Sauron's former fortress) which points to Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) having a fair bit of screen time.

Not only she called in the White Council to discuss about the moves to keep Sauron from conquering Middle-Earth, she was (spoiler!) the one to use her power to bring down Dol Guldur's walls.

There's a long background story to why she's so powerful, and of course comes with a big price to pay for it.
