Bilbo's back.

Hobbit fans rejoice, a sneak-preview of the third and final instalment of the epic fantasy franchise is finally here.

Actually, you may want to hold off on the rejoicing for it is a rather sombre affair.

The soundtrack consists of the haunting solo melody from 'Lord of the Rings' while various armies lineup to presumably slaughter the hell out of each other.

As with all of Peter Jackson’s Tolkien adaptations it looks fantastic - let's just hope it's not as overly long as some previous ventures...

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is due in theatres on Dec. 12, 2014.
