Seven brand-new character posters for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug have been released, and we think they look awesome!
The new posters show brand-new characters (at least for this flick) Bard the Bowman, played by Luke Evans, and Tauriel, an elf played by Lost’s Evangeline Lilly.
The returning characters are Gandalf, played by Sir Ian McKellen and the king of the Mirkwood elves, Thranduil, played by Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies), as well as a returning Legolas, played by the ever-youthful Orlando Bloom. We also have our badass dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield, played by Richard Armitage, and our brave little hobbit Bilbo, played by Martin Freeman.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will see the company of dwarves, along with Bilbo and Gandalf, continue their journey to retrieve the gold under Erebor (the Lonely Mountain) from the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch).
Director Peter Jackson’s next opus will be released on Dec. 13, 2014
