It’s the final film from Peter Jackson based on the beloved 300-page J.R.R. Tolkien novel, and it picks up right where we left off. The movie itself may only cover a few chapters (plus whatever’s been mined from the Appendices), but there’s enough in the trailer to have plenty of fans suddenly excited about the movie again.
Does the song playing throughout seem familiar? That’s because you’ve already heard it in Return of the King. It offers both a wave of nostalgia and impending doom, particularly because the song was paired off with visuals of the men of Gondor almost surely riding to their deaths.
Pippin’s ‘Edge of Night’ is the music in the new Hobbit trailer and I am all 😭😭😭
