hat – Stetson
This is it, folks.
‘The Desolation of Smaug’ is out in theaters!
Back in November I was kindly invited by Warner to the Hobbit fan event and attend a screening of the first part of the trilogy to refresh our memories before the next installment.
I’ll try not to give anything away (even if it’s a 76 year old book) but what I can say is that the new characters (and actors) are wonderful.
I want to be wood elf, Tauriel (played by Evangeline Lilly) when I grow up. She is fierce!
There is also some noticeable character development in this one. Bilbo is not the same hobbit that we once met in his comfortable armchair at Bag End at the beginning of this story. He realises how important the quest is to the other members of the company and he will try everything in his power to get them safely to the Erebor.
And then they meet Smaug.
Looking back at the pictures above, I realize that I was wearing the three items that I would bring with me on a long journey. A wool hat, a rainproof jacket and a durable backpack.
The hat would keep the sun out of my eyes, the jacket would keep me dry and the backpack would be filled with trail food and a map. I would not go far without them.
What would you bring on a perilous journey (across Middle-Earth)?
Are you planning to see the movie?
Have a great weekend,
