SHARE ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ teaser trailer released

Dwarves, elves, goblins, men, wizard, dragon and, of course, a Hobbit. New Line Cinema released the teaser trailer for the second installment of the Hobbit movie trilogy June 11. "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" continues to follow Bilbo Baggins and his company of dwarves on their journey to reclaim the fortune within the Lonely Mountain. The story is based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s book and is a prequel to “The Lord of the Rings” series.

Comments about the trailer vary, but many look forward to the role of the dragon Smaug in the upcoming film.

“I was amazed they showed as much of Smaug as they did; was thinking we might just see a shadow or an eye again. The line ‘Was that an earthquake?’ ‘That, my lad, was a dragon’ gave me CHILLS,” said Deej, staff member of The One Ring.net.

The film is scheduled for release Dec. 13, 2013.
