Two warnings: This info comes from the book, not the movies. So it’s not exactly what you’ll be seeing inย The Battle of the Five Armies. Also, if you’re not aware of the book’s ending, this post contains MASSIVE SPOILERS for The Battle of the Five Armies movie. The movie hits theaters Dec. 17.



  1. Nice! I’ve read the books twice, I’ve seen the extended editions of all the movies except for The Desolation of Smaug, and I’m about to do a movie marathon with my step-dad’s fiancee who has never seen these movies before. This is gonna be really good. I’ve purposely not listened to the end credits music because I don’t want to take away from the epicness. I’m gonna cry.

  2. Can’t wait!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve already read the book (so I know who dies ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I’m guessing Tauriel might die…

  3. This movie was amazing! It was the closest to the book of the 3 movies, and had great acting, mind-blowing visuals, and general epicness!
