Tolkien’s novel The Hobbit but it is the focus of Peter Jackson’s third and final Hobbit film.  It’s elves and humans versus dwarves and orcs, with a few special surprises thrown in!  How does the Battle of Five Armies compare to the Battle for Middle Earth in Return of the King, and were three films warranted to tell the story from one novel?  Thanks to your donation to Now Playing you can listen and find out as Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie complete their Lord of the Rings Bonus Retrospective Series!​The Battle of the Five Armies may only have been about 50 pages in J.R.R.

Overview
Immediately after the events of The Desolation of Smaug, Bilbo and the dwarves try to defend Erebor's mountain of treasure from others who claim it: the men of the ruined Laketown and the elves of Mirkwood. Meanwhile an army of Orcs led by Azog the Defiler is marching on Erebor, fueled by the rise of the dark lord Sauron. Dwarves, elves and men must unite, and the hope for Middle-Earth falls into Bilbo's hands.
