Are you as excited/sad as I am about the world premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies? I’m excited because that means I’ll get to see it soon but I’m also incredibly sad as I don’t want to say goodbye.

Peter Jackson will walk the green carpet alongside his cast including Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Lee Pace, Andy Serkis, Stephen Fry, Sylvester McCoy, Mikael Persbrandt, Ryan Gage, John Bell, Aidan Turner, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, Adam Brown, Jed Brophy and Billy Boyd.

It all starts at 5.30pm and you can watch it here: https://www.warnerbros.co.uk/insider/articles/2014/november/watch-the-world-premiere-of-the-hobbit-the-battle-of-the-five-armies-live-from-the-green-carpet
