Bilbo Goes Dragon-Hunting in Trailer for 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'
Old friends return in Peter Jackson's upcoming sequel

Tolkien nerds, rejoice! The trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is now available for your viewing pleasure.

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

The clip promises an action-packed ride, showing Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf and their company of dwarves traveling over waterfalls and through dark forests to battle the dragon Smaug. Fans of the original Lord of the Rings trilogy will surely be excited to see the return of Orlando Bloom as the elf Legolas, though purists might not be as keen on Evangeline Lilly's Tauriel, a new character invented for the films. Benedict Cumberbatch also stars as Smaug, portraying the villain using motion-capture technology.

Check the trailer above, and see if you can wait until December 13th for the premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
