Continuing with the theme of the previous trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, episodically, begins right where the Desolation of Smaug ends with Smaug the Impenetrable making a beeline toward Lake-town!
Our journey continues with the troupe of Dwarves looking out upon the smashed gate that has been wrecked by a fleeing Smaug. The vengeful dragon seeks to cause havoc, after years of slumber under the mountain, on the nearest town available, Lake-town. When the village is attacked, it's up to Bard (Luke Evans) to save his community and slay the mighty dragon, Smaug. Meanwhile, at the Lonely Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), takes his rightful place as the King Under the Mountain.
