Previously only seen decorating the screens of The Hobbit panel at this year’s San Diego Comic Con (and in lower quality snapshots we were able to post shortly after), the full scroll for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has now been released, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
This latest tapestry takes us through the final chapter of Peter Jackson’s epic Hobbit trilogy, beginning with Smaug’s attack on Laketown and finishing with the titular Battle of Five Armies.
Visit Entertainment Weekly’s site to take a close look at the scroll with a magnifier, or click on the preview below to see the full image.

Martin is 43 today. Happy birthday, Martin!
Martin is, of course, best known for his portrayal of Tim Canterbury in The Office, Dr. Watson in Sherlock, and our own Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit film trilogy.

You know, that crazy dwarf – king-to-be character – who was supposed to make an appearance in The Desolation of Smaug – but clearly didn’t. Upon seeing the first two films in The Hobbit trilogy, Thráin II (son of Thrór, father of Thorin Oakenshield) appears to be a rather key ingredient in the whole narrative – despite his lack of participation in the story.

ATLANTA — Prompted by Hobbit actor John Bell, Jed Brophy took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge while a guest at this year’s DragonCon in Atlanta. Jed was there as part of the “Tolkien’s Middle-earth” programming track and along with Craig Parker, Adam Brown, Manu Bennett and Billy Boyd, served as celebrity guest for the show.
As part of his efforts, he visited the swimming area at the Marriott Marquis and took the icy plunge to raise money and awareness for ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. He also challenged Parker and Brown to accept the challenge.

We’ve seen lots of photos of the Dale set in that was erected at Maupuia bush on the Miramar peninsula not too far from stone street Studios. But I don’t think we’ve ever seen one from above. Until now.
Ringer Duncan sends us the below image that he discovered on applemaps (which, weirdly, redirects to googlemaps but yano whatevs).

Today, via their Facebook page, our friends at Weta Workshop revealed a new collectible from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
The next Hobbit collectible will give collectors a chance to own Beorn’s House. Fans who are lucky enough to attend the Salt Lake Comic-Con can see this in person during the convention. All we know right now is that will be limited to only 750 pieces worldwide. Once we know more we will pass that information along.
