Warner Bros. has released a big story banner for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The banner features a couple of new characters, such as Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly) and Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans), along with old favorites like Bilbo (Martin Freeman), Gandalf (Ian McKellan), and Legolas (Orlando Bloom).
The film continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous Mirkwood Forest.
The movie is set to be released on December 13th.
