Back during Comic-Con when we thought there would just be two measly Hobbit films, we got a nice-looking banner that laid the sequence of Peter Jackson‘s story out on platter for us. But now, as two became three, there’s some further tinkering that needs to occur. Thanks to a new banner from an official iOS app, we can now see just where this December’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey cuts off at.
Spoilers of course, but One Ring uncovered the change in banner and Bleeding Cool, who know far more about Middle Earth than I do, say this is the scene “in which Gandalf, the dwarfs and Bilbo hide up in trees from a pack of wolves and then try to fight their way out with fire… but it doesn’t exactly go to plan.” For those wanting to know exactly where in the book, they add “this is from chapter six, of nineteen” titled –Out of the Frying Pan Into the Fire.
There you have it and while we still have no word on where that leaves films two and three, I’m sure WB will release some spoilery banners in no time. Meanwhile, I’ve pretty much got a gist of how this world will look, but the app also brings ten new photos, which can be seen following the banner (click it for hi-res).
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens on December 14th, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will hit theaters a year later on December 13th, 2013, then The Hobbit: There and Back Again lands on July 18th, 2014.
What do you think about this new end point?
