First, for those who celebrate, hope you had a Merry Christmas! But if you are here at TheOneRing.net and looking, we need to provide some post-holiday content. With “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” entertaining audiences around the world (now including Australia) we thought it was time to share a fan-made video complete with original song by a group in New Zealand. Some of the faces may be familiar, some of these folks are rumored to be extras in the film as well. Now, don’t take any of this too seriously, the gang is just having fun and actually thinks highly of all involved, as they will tell you if stick around for the post-credits.Posted in Characters, Evangeline Lilly, Hobbit Book, Hobbit Cast News, Hobbit Movie, J.R.R.

Staffer ImladrisRose attends NYC screening of Desolation of Smaug – with Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly
TORn staffer ImladrisRose writes: Last year when The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey had its US Premiere at the Ziegfield Theatre in New York City, I was fortunate enough to be on the black carpet representing TORn and covering the premiere. The event was busting at the seams with pure awesomeness and featured most of the film’s principal cast as well as Peter Jackson himself. However, there was no black carpet this year.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug had its world premiere extravaganza in Los Angeles this year and was covered by the Happy Hobbits. With the film’s cast and crew being sent on a whirlwind premiere tour after starting in LA, there was no mention of a New York premiere at all for this time around. I happened to stumble across a Twitter post from Evangeline Lilly on Tuesday afternoon which said “See you all at the #redcarpet in New York tomorrow night at the #timewarnercenter”.Posted in Evangeline Lilly, Events, Hobbit Cast News, Hobbit Movie, Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Orlando Bloom, Premieres, The Hobbit, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

It seems even Hollywood elves get worried about packing on the weight over the years!
When Orlando Bloom was asked how it felt to portray Legolas in The Hobbit trilogy after a decade, knowing he’s 60 years younger than he was in Lord of the Rings, he was justifiably anxious.
“The first thing I did when I got to New Zealand was try on my old Legolas costume, because I wanted to see if it would still fit,” the 36-year-old joked at yesterday’s live Hobbit global fan event.
