Legolas_Bard It’s no secret that news about The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies has been thin on the ground lately.

One tiny nugget of news that popped up mid-week was the release of an official synopsis in German that did little but confirm things that we already knew. So, yes, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving and Cate Blanchett will be reprising their roles in the final film. If you’re keen to have a read, head to Herr-der-Ringe for the German original, or check out the English translation on our messageboards courtesy of Ringer Ringer Arannir.

That aside, we’re pretty much all grasping at straws and going stir-crazy while waiting for the first trailer and teaser artwork to debut (yes, if it works like last year for The Desolation of Smaug, we will get a teaser poster as well).

However, that doesn’t mean we can’t re-examine what we’ve already got in the meantime. So, courtesy of one dedicated Ringer, here’s a collation of footage from the Vlogs to date that seems as though it could relate to the third and final film.
