J.R.R. Tolkien's magical world of Middle-earth is back on the big screen with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and audiences will find some familiar faces among the characters in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings prequel. Of course, there will still be a great many surprises – not the least of which is the long list of creatures the movie will introduce for the first time or take in a whole new direction.

Beautifully captured photo-scenes from the THE HOBBIT Films 1 and 2. That cute butterfly-moth that comes to Gandalf rescue at times is pretty impressive, as well. I noticed that the tiny creature did not get mentioned. In any event "we" totally enjoyed the newest installment Adventure to The HOBBIT: The Desolation of Smaug. It was spectacular Epic the HOBBIT Cast were spot-on amazing, really liked this next venture howbeit it's gettin' more and more dangerous for Bilbo, Thorin, Gandalf and the other brave Dwarfs...'etc.,. as they try to reclaim the lost Arkenstone/and Home Kingdom and save Middle-Earth...'from an unforeseen threat. The whole CAST shines: enjoyed the surprises throughout the movie and we plan on seeing it again & again!!
A couple of errors in the Guide - first, re Balin, it says he attempted to set up a kingdom in Moria after his adventures with Frodo. Someone was in a hurry. That should have said after his adventures with Bilbo. Second - Tolkien uses the terms orc and goblin synonymously. There is no difference between an orc and a goblin. Minor stuff indeed.
