During director Peter Jackson's live event for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, he showed off some of the first footage from the film. I wasn't able to see it myself at the time, but Warner Bros. finally allowed Jackson to post a six-minute excerpt of the live event, which gives us our first look at the second film in the highly anticipated Hobbit series! It also includes a great question from Stephen Colbert.

The story continues in the epic adventure of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), on a dangerous quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

The movie is set to hit theaters on December 13th, 2013. Check out the preview below and let us know what you think! I loved An Unexpected Journey, and I'm excited for this next chapter in the film series!
