Some of the cast of elves and dwarfs turned out at Comic-con in San Diego to tease the third and final in 'The Hobbit' franchise, 'The Battle of the Five Armies'. The adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkein's classic children's book 'The Hobbit' into three lengthy movies has faced criticism but actors Cate Blanchett and Orlando Bloom believe this film will make everything make sense. SOUNDBITE, actor Orlando Bloom, saying (English): "What's interesting is it's all kind of nicely tied into a bow that feels like it would go off into the trilogy of "Lord of the Rings" and I think that's what is really smart about what Pete, Fran and Phillip have done with "The Hobbit," they really thought about the six movies and not just you know, "The Hobbit." I think it's going to be fun for the fans to get to watch all of it, like a marathon Tolkien experience." SOUNDBITE, actress Evangeline Lily, saying (English): "My sisters will be doing that, guaranteed." SOUNDBITE actress Cate Blanchett, saying (English): "This time around there's a, perhaps a greater sense of ownership, personal ownership with the characters but also a really, like a Russian theater troop, we've existed in each other's psyches for so long that there was a deepening of those relationships that was quite remarkable and very rare." 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" reveals its first trailer on July 29 before the film goes on release internationally from mid-December.
