PJ you've made my day! I was practically hyperventilating when I saw this! This film is going to be magnificent, I can already tell I'm going to enjoy it 10 times more than LOTR! Jeez, this whole video was so beautiful
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
Those stone giants are fantastic, you really get the enormous sense of scale, like a force of nature brought to life.
That dwarf army must be a flashback, Thorin has a different coat and darker hair. I don't think that can be Dain with him, he's too old - maybe Nain? Would make sense for Dain to inherit his father's weapon. Those dwarf lords in their furs and finery look great, as do the armoured soldiers!
Can't get enough of those absolutely breathtaking sets. They have really outdone themselves: Rhosgobel, Beorn's house, Goblin town, and Dale! Oh, Dale is just exquisite. I wonder how it will feature?
I'm so glad to see little details such as Gollum's boat, the honeycomb and carvings in Beorn's house, the Mirkwood elves wearing autumn colours. Radagast is going to be a very lovable character I can see, and Tauriel and Galadriel both look gorgeous (though in the former's case also like a warrior!)
Finally, the cameos of eagles and wargs make me eager for the next trailer, to be in full CGI please and thank you
What a wondrous journey this must have been with all those extraordinarily agreeable people, cast and crew. Beside my excitement this made me quite sad. My tears were a mixture of joy and desolation....
When it's time to pray, we'll be dressed up all in grey, with metal on our tongues, and silver in our lungs.
