Five months before it hits cinemas, and after fans at San Diego Comic-Con got an advanced look last weekend, we've now got our first teaser for the finale of Peter Jackson's second Middle Earth trilogy.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which would would say is a difficult title to try and make work but then we remembered how many times we saw and typed The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, sees all our various heroes (hobbits, dwarfs, elves, ordinary men and old reliable Gandalf) prepping for all out war as Benedict Cumberbatch's Smaug the dragon is on the rampage and Sauron (yes, him of the giant fiery eye) is massing forces to stop any who are in the way of his nefarious plans.

And that song you hear in the background? It's the same one that Pippin sang in The Return of the King, so that's one of the reasons you're probably feeling all nostalgic watching this. You're not the only one who's getting all verklempt.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is set for release on December 12th.
