Richard Armitage is Really Looking Forward to The Battle of Five Armies
Thorin is ready for his big moment

Yesterday, Peter Jackson finally confirmed that the third part in the Hobbit trilogy was getting a new subtitle - The Battle of Five Armies.

This mainly confirms that point that, unlike the original books, the kiwi filmmaker is going to be putting a lot of his attention on the massive war which breaks out towards the end of the story, as multiple factions descend on the Lonely Mountain to claim its hoard of treasure.

And that's hardly surprising, Jackson's a big fan of spectacle - something which has helped to make this adaptation far longer than it has to be. But it turns out that the cast are really excited by the prospect of seeing a section which never appeared in the book and getting some heroic moments into the bargain.

Here's Thorin himself (Richard Armitage) talking about his hopes for the battle at WonderCon.

Of course anyone who has read the book has a little more insight into how things turn out for the many characters in the film. It's going to be a big moment.

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies is in cinemas from the 12th of December 2014.
