‘The Hobbit 2′ Posters: This Fellowship Is Ready for Battle

The Hobbit 2 Character Posters
Warner Bros.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug‘ is now just over a month away, bringing back Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen and that bumbling band of dwarfs to continue their journey to face down the evil dragon Smaug. But who are the new warriors we’ll meet along the way? If you still don’t know your Tolkien mythology, Warner Bros. has released seven new ‘The Hobbit 2′ character posters.

Well, one arrow-slinger is more of an old friend — Orlando Bloom reprises his role of Legolas from director Peter Jackson’s first ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy for ‘The Hobbit 2.’ He’s joined by fellow elves Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly), a character not from the original novel made specially for the film, and Elvenking Thranduil (Lee Pace). Luke Evans (‘Fast and Furious 6′) also newly joins ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy as Bard the Bowman.

But, of course, Thorin, Gandalf and Bilbo all rightfully get their own posters, as well.

‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ picks up after ‘An Unexpected Journey,’ and although he’s not featured in this new train of marketing materiel, the increasingly more popular Benedict Cumberbatch will be making his first appearance (or his voice will, rather) as the dragon Smaug, who’s taken over the dwarfs homeland.

UPDATE:┬áIn addition to the seven character posters, Warner Bros. released the new official poster for ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,’ featuring all these characters crammed together on one epic one-sheet.

‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ will hit theaters this December 13. Until then, check out the new posters below.
