Richard Armitage talks The Hobbit: There And Back Again

This interview with Richard Armitage was conducted at the Empire Awards the other day. (Thanks to those who corrected my mistake!).

In it Richard Armitage speaks about the conclusion of the Hobbit adventure for Jackson and his crew, that he thinks There And Back Again will be shorter and his thoughts on why Tolkien’s stories continue to endure.

I think Tolkien was, obviously, the first writer that really explored fantasy in a way that has stood the test of time because he writes … legend, I believe. He doesn’t write something that doesn’t feel like it’s not rooted in this world. and that’s what brings people back to it time and again. Because it just feels real.

No details about what occurs during The Battle of the Five Armies, alas:

I can tell you absolutely nothing about the Battle of the Five Armies except that it cost me some blood, and some tears.
