Way back in June, J.R.R. Tolkien fans curiosity was mildly satiated with a teaser for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, the second film in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy. Today, the first trailer for the movie was revealed, offering curious film buffs a few more details, including the return of Legolas (played by Orlando Bloom) and two new characters: Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly) and Beorn (Mikael Persbrandt).
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters Dec. 13. The trilogy’s conclusion, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will premiere Dec. 17, 2014.
