As we prepare for the third ind final chapter in The Hobbit Trilogy, we take a closer look at the mysterious and dark character known as “The Necromancer”. He’s has been kind of a haunting character in the first two Hobbit movies. As we all know, the Necromancer is actually the Dark Lord Sauron from The Lord of the Rings. The character will be voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch in The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, and today we have an image that gives us a good look at the character. We got a half a second glimpse of him in The Desolation of Smaug.In case you missed the last trailer for The Battle of Five Armies, you can watch it here.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.
The final chapter in the trilogy will be released on December 17th. Thanks to The One Ring, who posted a scanned image from a book that led me to this.
