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.
Anyway the big world premiere takes place in London on Monday evening and if you can’t make it there’s a live stream! Hurrah.

So here we are then, the final trailer for the final Hobbit film has been released. This is the last time we’ll ever see a trailer for one of Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth films and it makes me very sad.
I absolutely loved Lord of the Rings and always name the trilogy as my favourite film. I’ve enjoyed The Hobbit but it’s never real,y lived up to my expectations. I hope The Battle of the Five Armies gives the series a fitting send-off and actually the trailer looks pretty epic.
i both look forward to and dread seeing the final film – it really will be the end of a chapter for me, I started writing about LotR before Fellowship was even released and 14 years later it’s time to say goodbye…
