It’s coming. We can’t wait for it. The thing that everyone has been buzzing about since last December. Speaking for myself, I’ve been ready for this moment for two years. What is it, you may ask?

The third and final film in Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, featuring BBC’s Sherlock star Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins.

Jackson brought back some of The Lord of the Rings’ most iconic cast members in the first installment The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, such as Elijah Wood as Frodo and Ian Holm as older Bilbo Baggins.

The Lord of the Rings star Ian McKellen, who plays the vital role of Gandalf the Grey, also returned. (Although… who in their right mind wouldn’t bring McKellen back?)

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug featured Martin Freeman’s Sherlock co-star, Benedict Cumberbatch (if you don’t know who he is, then go on Tumblr. You’ll learn pretty quickly, what with all the SuperWhoLock crossovers) as Smaug the Terrible. (He’s the giant dragon, pretty hard to miss.)

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug also featured LotR’s Elven hotty, Legolas, who wasn’t actually in the novel. However, in LotR, Legolas is said to be the son of Thranduil, King of the Woodland Realm of Northern Mirkwood, who captures the company of Dwarves as they enter the Mirkwood, after fighting, like, a bajillion spiders.

Now getting to the part that might spoil The Battle of the Five Armies…

Who else is expecting Niagara Falls when Kili dies? Because HOLY CRAP! Did anyone else see that picture where Kili gave the talisman from his mother to Tauriel? My heart isn’t ready for this.

I feel bad for saying this, but I resent Tolkien for killing off Kili. My only hope is that Aidan Turner will continue his career after The Hobbit is over and done with (which he most likely will.)

As a life-long Lord of the Rings fan, I am incredibly excited for The Battle of the Five Armies. I can’t wait until all of the The Hobbit mods come out for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I have literally been shaking with anticipation ever since the trailer came out. In fact, I plan on naming my first son Samwise, as in Samwise the Brave, Frodo Baggins’ best friend.

If you’re as much of a Ringer as I am, you’ll definitely get where I’m coming from with this. In regards to The Battle of the Five Armies, if I have to wait much longer, my head will blow up like a firework on the Fourth of July.
