But there is also one new, yet familiar face from the original Lord of the Rings trilogy: Legolas, who is played by Orlando Bloom. Lost actress Evangeline Lilly is also stars as female elf Taurine.

And if The Desolation of Smaug wasn’t enough, the third movie in the trilogy, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, hits theaters in December 2014.
