Warner Brothers has released the official synopsis for Peter Jackson’s final Middle-Earth film. Check out what we can expect from The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies. Expect even more news and (hopefully) footage to come from Warner Brothers at Comic Con. 

The Official Synopsis: From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies," the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.
Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo's frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.
As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies features Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, vangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, with Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, and Orlando Bloom.

The Hobbit is a very short novel, which has been creatively expanded into 3 films.  If you think you know what this third film will be because you the Battle of Five Armies was in the book, you did not read the book, and you must not have been paying attention to the first 2 movies either.  In the book, the Battle of the Five Armies took about 1/2 a chapter, and there wasn't much depth to it.  In the original animated movie it took about 5 minutes.  I am looking forward to how Jackson presents this piece, which was almost a footnote in the book.  If he does anything close to how he put the Helm's Deep piece on film, we are in for a real treat.
