“Air! I need air!”
I’m channelling Bofur’s lines here, from The Desolation of Smaug because that is exactly what I’m going through right now.
Unlike the dwarf however, who found himself trapped in the claustrophobic entanglement of Mirkwood Forest, mine is out of pure joy after seeing the just-released banner scroll for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
Making its debut back at this year’s Comic-Con, the general public can now see – in full glory – the tear-inducing emotions and spine-tingling epicness that is in store in the final installment of The Hobbit.
In a tradition that has spanned over the last three years, the studios have given us a rich tapestry of colours, depicting some of the highlights and major moments of the upcoming film.
Now, with the end approaching, the massive scale and weight of Bilbo’s journey, comes charging forward like an unstoppable army (or rather, five).
With October on the way – and the official trailer on the horizon – marketing is hopefully starting to ramp up as we are now just 3 months away from the release of The Battle of the Five Armies.
In a bid to keep this post spoiler-free, I’m going to shut up now from my excitement and simply let you admire and examine every pixel and intricate detail on the scroll.
And remember, apart from the release of the film, this is the best time to enjoy the feeling of anticipation at revisiting Middle-earth. Make the most of it, for you and I will definitely miss it!
