Hear ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ End Credits Song Performed by Pippin Himself
It’s being touted as the “definitive chapter” in the ‘Hobbit’ trilogy, and it promises to be an epic conclusion, culminating in a huge, 45-minute battle sequence. But it’s also been quite a journey, with three ‘Lord of the Rings’ films and now three ‘Hobbit’ films. For this farewell, ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ will get an appropriately emotional goodbye with an end credits song performed by Billy Boyd, who played Pippin in all three ‘Lord of the Rings’ films. And now you can listen to the end credits song in full before the film hits theaters.
Billboard posted the full song, appropriately titled “The Last Goodbye,” and—as you might expect—it’s pretty emotional. Sung by Boyd, who played Pippin in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, the song is a touching farewell to the series and a wonderful tribute to the epic journey we’ve taken with these films and characters over the years. Boyd says, “We focused on not just the final installment, but moreso on this 10-year epic adventure,” and adds that it’s a song to sum up all six films.
You can listen to the song from ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ in the player below, and hear it at the end of the film itself when it hits theaters on December 17.
