Spoilers and details of the third installment of The Hobbit franchise, called The Battle of Five Armies, are making fans excited as the first look draws near

I don’t personally recall the battle of the five armies, nor the confrontation between Sauron and the White Council. Is there any source material on either one?
The battle of the five armies takes place in the next to last chapter of the book. The White Council does fight Sauron at Dol Goldor but it is “off camera”.
Those that have read the books know what happens. But there’s still probably nothing that could prepare you for actually seeing it on film.
“It has been reported that the film will follow Tolkien’s book, though one character who died in the book, Thorin Oakenshield, will remain alive.”
Is there ANYTHING Peter Jackson cannot screw up?!
Sounds the Jackson really thinks he could teach JRR Tolkien a thing or two about story-telling.
As long as Jackson is drawing upon source material for the movie, I’m generally fine with small changes, if it helps with the box office.
I’m generally grateful Peter Jackson fought, even risking his and the parent studio, to get it made.
the battle of the five armies is in the book. White council not.
How are they going to tie this in with Game of Thrones? /ducks
We cannot WAIT! We are cheap, cheap, CHEAP and have seen all of the LOTR movies in IMAX at top dollar. Well worth the time and money spent.
Signed, a Very Satisfied Consumer :)
Although I wish Jackson would let him die, it could be an interesting interpretation.
If told right.
I think they are making all these Tolkien movies because they’ve already built most of the sets.
And probably ten billion dollars in sheer profit.
Small changes? In the most recent movie, three of the most prominent characters were not even *in* the book, and the plot was distorted beyond recognition.
I have to admit that ancient history was not my best subject in school.
So was, The Battle of Five Armies, where the Five Armies squared off against the Five Guys hamburger chain in the Burgher Wars?
I am so confused...
The very first LOTR movie was ok, the extended version better.
The rest, including all the Hobbit, have been horrible.
The only change Im personally aware of was the affection between the elf and dwarf. Everything else is part of the Tolkien universe in one of his books somewhere.
Like it or not, though not many females are in the Tolkien books, they exist in real life and they need something to keep them interested in wanting to see the movie. :)
