Before the launch of the final part in the trilogy about the adventures of Bilbo Baggins and his allies, which is planned for this December, more and more interesting information concerning the future motion picture continues appearing online. Not so long time ago, we showed you the new posters of upcoming fantasy action, and today we’d like to share with you the latest The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies news.
So, let’s start from the plot’s details. Recently, the project’s director - Peter Jackson - has told about the conclusion of the third instalment in the film series. According to him, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movie will include a 45-minute long scene of a final battle, which will become a truly epic end of a trilogy. At this time, Jackson has assured that despite such a lengthy combat, the audience won’t lose the interest to the action. “We have a rule that we’re not allowed to go more than two or three shots of anonymous people fighting without cutting back to our principal characters. Otherwise the audience just ends up with battle fatigue”, - the director has said. He has also added that considering such a vast diversity of characters, who take part in the epic fight, it was very important to think over the functions of each of them in it.
Peter Jackson has also told that The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movie will demonstrate us Lord of the Eagles, and his warriors will play one of the key roles in the final battle.
Another The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies news concerns the future motion picture’s soundtrack. Billy Boyd, who played a role of Pippin in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, will perform a song titled The Last Goodbye. It will sound at the end of the fantasy action. The creators of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movie have commented on their choice the following: “It is hard, after 16 years and six films, to know exactly how to say goodbye. We knew that we wanted to speak directly to all those who have taken this journey with us, especially to the fans whose love of these films has so often kept us going. This is why we asked Billy Boyd, who has been with us from the very beginning, and whose portrayal as Peregrin Took in 'The Lord of the Rings' films is so beloved, to help write and perform the final song in this trilogy. Billy is not just a wonderful actor but also an extremely accomplished singer/songwriter - we are so glad he agreed once again to share his talent with us”.
The film’s creators have also noted that the future track will become a farewell not only with Middle-earth but also with the whole audience.
Let us remind you that The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movie will hit the cinemas on December 17th.
