Will Smaug appear in the Hobbit trailers ? Can't Post

What do you think ?

My bet is we will hear Smaug only.

I don't believe [In reply to] Can't Post

we'll see hide nor hair of Smaug until the trailer for the second film.

Depends how Mr Jackson sliced up the film... [In reply to] Can't Post

If he really goes in-depth for the intervening 60 years (and this may be the best opportunity ever for those years to be explored) then Smaug is definitely Film One and will appear. If that's only going to be peripheral (the 60 years) then it will likely be as you suggest.

Since those 60 years are all post-Hobbit... [In reply to] Can't Post

...the appearance of Smaug isn't affected.

My guess is that Smaug's end will be the grand finale of Film 1.

I think Smaug will be alluded to [In reply to] Can't Post

at the end of film one - we might even see a long-shot of the Lonely Mountain and a moving shadow, to visualise the as-yet unseen menace that awaits the party - but I doubt we'll see Smaug himself until well into movie 2.

Maybe [In reply to] Can't Post

I think we'll maybe get a glimpse of him in a later trailer, but I doubt much because they would want to save him for a while.
I've seen people surprised that he wasn't in the teaser, but come on. It's a year until the first movie comes out (and the second two) - the dragon is probably not even close to finished in many ways.
