Now that The Hobbit is being split into three films, and not two, there’s some restructuring underway. An old promotional banner showed quite clearly where the original divide was going to come, but that break point has now been shifted.
And looking at the new iOS Hobbit Movies app, there’s a fresh banner to be found. This one runs along to where An Unexpected Journey is now set to wrap-up, before film two, The Desolation of Smaug, picks up the threads.
Here’s the scroll. Click through to see it at full size.
For those not in the know, this depicts a scene in which Gandalf, the dwarfs and Bilbo hide up in trees from a pack of wolves and then try to fight their way out with fire… but it doesn’t exactly go to plan. This is from chapter six, of nineteen, in the book – Out of the Frying Pan Into the Fire.
Now… where will film two end? Any guesses?
Thanks to The One Ring for the tip.
