The first Hobbit movie hasn’t even hit theaters yet and already Warner Bros. is releasing photos of the third installment of the series, The Hobbit: There And Back Again. The first image gives us a look at Orlando Bloom’s Legolas and Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman. Check it out.
In There and Back Again, Bilbo, Gandalf and the Dwarfs are in Smaug’s lair, hoping to get their gold and return home safely.
In the next two Hobbit films, Bard (Evans) plays a pivotal role. It’s unclear how big of a character Legolas will be, but Peter Jackson has said that it makes sense to include the elf in the films because he’s Tranduil’s son, and because elves are immortal.
Here’s the photo of Bloom and Evans. There And Back Again hits theaters July 18, 2014. But The Hobbit And Unexpected Journey opens December 14.
