Two new photos of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit #3 “The Battle of the Five Armies” have been released by Warner Bros. Pictures, with the San Diego Comic-Con about to get underway.
Storyline: The Battle of Five Armies was an important battle waged in T.A. 2941. The five warring parties were the Orcs and the Wargs against Men of Dale, Elves, Eagles, Dwarves and a Shape Shifter “Beorn” on and near the Lonely Mountain.
… in all the mountains there was a forging and an arming. Then they marched … until around and beneath the great mountain Gundabad of the North, where was their capital, a vast host was assembled ready to sweep down in time of storm unawares upon the South.”
