The travelers leave Rivendell.
They will have to go through the mountains (right inside! I'll remind you that in all Del Toro's works there is a little bit where they are in a series of underground passages, so it will be avery Del Toroesque moment)
Down in the caves they are brought before the king of the goblins (or Orcs), popularly rumored to be played by Ron Perlman (Hellboy).
The Party is split accidentally and Bilbo finds himself in Gollum's gloomy home (Gollum will be again played by Andy Serkis) and they start to play a game - a game of riddles. Perhaps this may sound like a boring part of the movie, but Del Toro seems to believe that it's going to be one of the best parts of the movie, so I can only wait and see how he brings that part to life.
While Bilbo is down there, he finds a mysterious golden ring which seems to make people disappear if they wear it on their finger... I think we might have heard about this ring in another movie (Ha ha) ! Yes it's the Ring of Power.
They make it through the mountains, but not without difficulties.
Before they get to their destination they encounter a strange creature called Beorn (possibly to be acted by Doug Jones, who plays The Faun in Pan's Labyrinth and Abe Sapien in Hellboy).
They will also to pass through the evil forest of Mirkwood, where some great evil dwells. There they will come across some very big spiders (this is the part where we'll have to look away because it's going to be super scary!), and they will meet with a band of Elves, and we will get to see Orlando Bloom again for a little while as he reprises his role as Legolas.
Then finally they will come to their destination... to the den of Smaug the Dragon! (voiced by either Christopher Lee or Ron Perlman)
And to top it all, we've got a huge battle at the end: The Battle of the Five Armies. I'm sure we'll have some nice battle action from Legolas and Gandalf. What I do know is, this battle sequence is going to be superb... so look forward to it!
There's my vision of what Del Toro and Jackson are to do with the movie, now lets have a few opinions on it! I'd love to hear what you think! The visuals are going to be superb, and I'm sure that there will be a lot of fantasy creatures for us to look at. It seems as this movie will be like Lord of the Rings crossed with Pan's Labyrinth, two of the most popular fantasy films ever, now this has got to be good!
These events are not necessarily going to be what happens in the film, but is what I believe to be likely from info that has been given and from studying of the talents Directing and producing the films!
