==Plot==
 
==Plot==
A plot description for ''The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'' has not yet been released.
+
At [[the Prancing Pony]] Inn in [[Bree]], [[Gandalf]] the Grey warns [[Thorin]] [[Oakenshield]] that someone is trying to have him killed. He persuades Thorin to obtain the [[Arkenstone]] to unite the [[Dwarves]], and suggests that a stealthy burglar may be needed to steal the jewel back from [[Smaug]].
 +
 +
Twelve months later, Thorin and his [[Thorin and Company|Company]] are being pursued by [[Azog]] and his [[Orcs|Orc]] party down the [[Carrock]] following the events of the previous film. After [[Bilbo Baggins|Bilbo]] informs the group that a [[Bears|bear]] is also tracking them, Gandalf ushers them along to the home of a [[Skin-changers|skin-changer]]. Upon their arrival, they are attacked by the same bear; Gandalf reveals that it is the [[Beorn's Hall|home]] of [[Beorn]] and that he may be able to aid them in their journey. That night, Azog is summoned to [[Dol Guldur]] by the [[Sauron#Sauron's Return|Necromancer]], and instructs his son [[Bolg]] to take over the hunt for Thorin. The next day, Beorn loans his [[horses]] to the company so they can reach [[Mirkwood]] and hinder the pursuing Orcs. Upon arrival at the forest border, Gandalf discovers [[Black Speech]] graffiti imprinted on an old ruin, coinciding with a telepathic message from [[Galadriel]] imploring him to investigate the tombs of the [[Nazgûl]] (at an [[High Fells of Rhudaur|unnamed location]]).
 +
Without giving any reason for his sudden departure, Gandalf advises the Company to follow the [[Elves|Elven]] path though Mirkwood, and to wait for him before entering the [[Lonely Mountain]]. But upon losing their way in the forest, the Dwarves are captured by giant [[spiders]]. Bilbo, with the help of his new [[The One Ring|Ring]], manages to free them from the webs and names his sword [[Sting]]. However, while fighting the attacking spiders, Bilbo drops the Ring, and he begins to learn of the corruption it has on him after brutally killing a crab-like spider to retrieve it.
  
==People involved==
+
The Dwarves are captured by the [[Elves of Mirkwood|Wood-elves]], including [[Legolas]] and [[Tauriel]], a captain of the guard. They are to the Elven-king [[Thranduil]]'s [[Elvenking's Halls|kingdom]], and are locked up. During their captivity, a romantic subplot develops between Tauriel and [[Kíli]].
:''See:[[The Hobbit (film series)#People involved|''The Hobbit'' (film series)#People involved]]''
+
While the others are imprisoned, Thorin is given audience with Thranduil, but he refuses Thranduil's aid and is imprisoned as well. Under the cloak of the Ring, Bilbo helps the Dwarves to escape by using empty wine barrels, which are sent floating down the river. Along the way, they are ambushed by Bolg and his Orc party, while the Elves pursue the Dwarves to cease their escape. In the ensuing chaos, Kíli is wounded by a Morgul arrow. Legolas and Tauriel are forced to halt their pursuit of the Dwarves in order to end the Orc onslaught. One [[Narzug|captive]] is imprisoned and questioned by Thranduil. When Thranduil learns that "The One" has returned, he decides to seal off his kingdom to protect it from the impending evil. However, Tauriel leaves to save Kíli, whom she learns has been poisoned by Bolg's arrow, and Legolas accompanies her.
 +
 
 +
Subsequently, the Company meets a man named [[Bard]], and they bribe him to smuggle them into [[Lake-town]], where the descendants of [[Dale]] made their home, and where the [[Master of Lake-town|Master]] of the town rules with an iron fist. The group attempts to steal weapons before being captured and in the process learn that Bard is a descendant of Dale's ruler, [[Girion]], who died attempting to kill Smaug with [[Black Arrow]]s. After Thorin convinces the townfolk and Master that they will share the riches of the recaptured Mountain, the adventurers receive a grand send-off the next morning. The injured Kíli is ordered to stay behind until he gets his strength back; [[Óin]], [[Fíli]] and [[Bofur]] also remain to tend him in Bard's house.
 +
 
 +
As the events of Thorin's Company occurs, Gandalf reaches the remote tomb of the Nazgûl and found that they have been revived. He is joined by [[Radagast]] the Brown, and it is revealed that the Necromancer cannot be a mere human, as the Nazgûl answer only to one [[Sauron|master]]. Returning to Mirkwood, while sending Radagast to warn Galadriel of their discovery, Gandalf enters the Orc- and [[Wargs|Warg]]-infested Dol Guldur, and is attacked by Azog. While attempting to escape, the Necromancer appears, and, following a duel between the two, Gandalf is captured. With his worst fears realized – that the Necromancer is indeed [[Sauron]] – Gandalf watches in horror as the Orc army marches toward the Lonely Mountain.
 +
 
 +
Once at the Lonely Mountain, Bilbo deciphers the [[Thrór's Map|map]]'s cryptic clue and uses moonlight to find the hidden keyhole that opens the [[Back Door|secret door]] into the mountain. [[Balin]] then explains Bilbo's real purpose and sends him down to the treasury to locate the Arkenstone. Unfortunately, Bilbo's searching quickly awakens Smaug, who initially finds the [[Hobbits|Hobbit]] amusing, but swiftly tires of him and intends to kill him. In Lake-town, Bard hears the rumbling caused by Smaug's awakening and attempts to affix the last Black Arrow to the town's launcher, but is arrested. Óin, Fíli, Bofur, and Bard's daughters, [[Sigrid]] and [[Tilda]], are attacked by Bolg's hunting party before Legolas and Tauriel drive them off, with the latter remaining behind to tend to Kíli. Then, in a dream-like state after his medication, Kíli admits his love for Tauriel. After convincing Thorin that they must help Bilbo, the Dwarves enter the Mountain and find themselves and the [[Hobbits|Hobbit]] being hunted by Smaug. Tricking the [[Fire-drakes|fire-breathing]] Smaug into rekindling the forges, they attempt to kill the dragon by drowning him in a flood of molten gold. However, Smaug survives, and stumbles out of the mountain determined to make the people of Lake-town suffer for giving aid to the Dwarves, leaving Bilbo horrified at the turn of events.

==Deviations from the source material==
 +
The film covers the seventh through twelfth chapters of ''[[The Hobbit]]'' with a few elements added from the [[The Lord of the Rings Appendices|Appendices]] from ''[[The Lord of the Rings]]''. While it generally follows the story, a number of liberties were still taken:
 +
 
 +
* [[Thorin]]'s encounter with [[Gandalf]] at [[the Prancing Pony]] in which the [[Wizards|Wizard]] urges him to take back [[Lonely Mountain|Erebor]] was not a chance meeting as it was in [[J.R.R. Tolkien|Tolkien]]'s writings, but rather orchestrated by Gandalf himself.
 +
* Instead of crossing [[Mirkwood]]'s [[Enchanted River]] by boat, [[Bilbo Baggins|Bilbo]] and the [[Thorin and Company|Dwarves]] climb on vines that extend across the river. This scene is only seen in the [[The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (extended edition)|Extended Edition]] of the film.
 +
* In the book, Thorin was captured separately before the rest of the [[Thorin and Company|Company]] and kept captive in his own room (where he was treated and fed well) when he wouldn't reveal his purpose for being in Mirkwood. The other [[Dwarves]] weren't told he was there.
 +
* [[Thranduil]] guesses the purpose of the Company's mission was to retake Erebor, and tries to make a deal with Thorin. In the book, he is oblivious to this.
 +
* Thranduil at first allowed the other Dwarves to move about freely within his halls, but he finally locked them up, each to his own cell, because they were being obnoxious and insulting in the book. In the film, they are immediately locked up.
 +
* Neither [[Legolas]] nor [[Tauriel]] appear in the book. Indeed, the latter character is a creation of the filmmakers.
 +
* [[Bilbo Baggins|Bilbo]] hides the Dwarves in the barrels (with no tops) while the chief guard and [[Galion]] the butler were asleep, and he launches them into the [[Forest River|river]] himself. In the book, the Elves themselves later pushed the barrels (which they thought were empty; they were also covered with lids) through the trapdoor and opened the portcullis at the water-gate to let the barrels into the river.
 +
* In the book, the portcullis was a grate lowered down across the opening (the water-gate) that let the stream from the cave flow out into the river. In the film, the portcullis was a side-swinging type, and it wouldn't have kept anybody inside the cave because it was outside on the river.
 +
* There is a pursuit by the [[Elves of Mirkwood|Elves]] after the Dwarves' escape from the [[Elvenking's Halls]] (where the [[Elves]] did not yet know how the Dwarves had escaped), and the pack of [[Orcs]] who were pursuing the Company in the previous film catch up and attack as the barrels float down the river. The Elves then counterattack the Orcs.
 +
* [[Kíli]] is struck with a Morgul arrow by [[Bolg]] during the barrel escape when trying to open the water-gate, and it slowly saps his strength through the rest of the film. He is ultimately healed by Tauriel (who uses [[athelas]] to do so) in [[Lake-town]], where his health had become critical. No such incident occurs in Tolkien's works.
 +
* [[Bard]] meets the Dwarves on the river, and [[Balin]] convinces him to smuggle the Company into Lake-town in the barrels. In the book, [[Raft-elves]] intercepted the barrels and made them into a raft they steered down the river to [[Long Lake]] where [[Men]] in boats pulled it into Lake-town with the undiscovered Dwarves still inside and Bilbo (still wearing his [[The One Ring|Ring]]) invisibly riding along.
 +
* In addition to [[Bain]], Bard has two other children: daughters [[Sigrid]] and [[Tilda]]. He is also revealed to be a widower.
 +
* The [[Master of Lake-town]] has a majordomo in the film: [[Alfrid]]. He frequently informs the Master of various goings-on in the town, particularly the rumors of people plotting to possibly unseat him from his position of power - Bard, in particular. In the book, the Master had various aides who were unnamed and only briefly mentioned.
 +
* Due to his worsening condition, Thorin refuses to let Kíli go up to the Mountain with the rest of the Company. [[Fíli]] and [[Óin]] opt to stay behind to look after him. Additionally, [[Bofur]] gets left behind after oversleeping. All thirteen Dwarves went up to the Mountain in the book.
 +
* In the Extended Edition of the film, Gandalf encounters a gaunt, bewildered [[Thráin II]] while investigating [[Dol Guldur]]. He somewhat heals the Dwarf's insanity, and Thráin helps guide him through the fortress, also revealing that his [[Thrór|father]]'s [[Ring of Thrór|ring]] had been entrusted to him and had ultimately been cut from his finger and taken from him by [[Azog]] during the [[Battle of Azanulbizar]]. Thráin is ultimately swallowed up by [[Sauron]] just before the Dark Lord reveals himself to Gandalf. This is evidently a reworking of the encounter of the two that took place in {{TA|2850}} made to fit into the film trilogy's events, though Thráin does not give [[Thrór's Map]] and Erebor's [[Back Door]] key to Gandalf in the film (having done so on a previous, unseen occasion), nor does Gandalf not ever realise the Dwarf's identity during the meeting.
 +
* In the book, the last rays of the setting [[sun]] on [[Durin's Day]] reveal the keyhole to the [[Back Door|secret door]] into the [[Lonely Mountain]], as predicted by the [[Moon-letters|runes]] on the [[Thrór's Map|map]]. In the film, the light of the [[moon]] reveals the keyhole after the sun has set.
 +
* Bard is imprisoned toward the end of the film, purely because the Master sees him as a threat.
 +
* Bolg's Orc pack arrives in Lake-town to ambush the remaining Dwarves, but are foiled by the arrival of Legolas and Tauriel. They retreat once they realize Thorin has already reached the Mountain.
 +
* Bilbo has only one audience with [[Smaug]], and does not take a gold cup from him. He also takes his Ring off not long after the [[Dragons|Dragon]] detects his presence.
 +
* Smaug seems fully aware of Thorin and Company's presence, as well as Sauron's impending attack on the Dwarves.
 +
* The climax of the film is an involved battle between Thorin's Dwarves and Smaug inside of the Lonely Mountain, in which they ultimately try (unsuccessfully) to drown the beast in molten gold after re-lighting the forges. In the book, the Dwarves never see the Dragon at all; by the time they head downstairs to the Dragon's lair, Smaug is long gone (in fact, although they don't know it at that point, he's already dead).

[edit] Synopsis

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all — a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself — the Dragon Smaug.''
Warner Bros.[5]

[edit] Plot

At the Prancing Pony Inn in Bree, Gandalf the Grey warns Thorin Oakenshield that someone is trying to have him killed. He persuades Thorin to obtain the Arkenstone to unite the Dwarves, and suggests that a stealthy burglar may be needed to steal the jewel back from Smaug.

Twelve months later, Thorin and his Company are being pursued by Azog and his Orc party down the Carrock following the events of the previous film. After Bilbo informs the group that a bear is also tracking them, Gandalf ushers them along to the home of a skin-changer. Upon their arrival, they are attacked by the same bear; Gandalf reveals that it is the home of Beorn and that he may be able to aid them in their journey. That night, Azog is summoned to Dol Guldur by the Necromancer, and instructs his son Bolg to take over the hunt for Thorin. The next day, Beorn loans his horses to the company so they can reach Mirkwood and hinder the pursuing Orcs. Upon arrival at the forest border, Gandalf discovers Black Speech graffiti imprinted on an old ruin, coinciding with a telepathic message from Galadriel imploring him to investigate the tombs of the Nazgûl (at an unnamed location). Without giving any reason for his sudden departure, Gandalf advises the Company to follow the Elven path though Mirkwood, and to wait for him before entering the Lonely Mountain. But upon losing their way in the forest, the Dwarves are captured by giant spiders. Bilbo, with the help of his new Ring, manages to free them from the webs and names his sword Sting. However, while fighting the attacking spiders, Bilbo drops the Ring, and he begins to learn of the corruption it has on him after brutally killing a crab-like spider to retrieve it.

The Dwarves are captured by the Wood-elves, including Legolas and Tauriel, a captain of the guard. They are to the Elven-king Thranduil's kingdom, and are locked up. During their captivity, a romantic subplot develops between Tauriel and Kíli. While the others are imprisoned, Thorin is given audience with Thranduil, but he refuses Thranduil's aid and is imprisoned as well. Under the cloak of the Ring, Bilbo helps the Dwarves to escape by using empty wine barrels, which are sent floating down the river. Along the way, they are ambushed by Bolg and his Orc party, while the Elves pursue the Dwarves to cease their escape. In the ensuing chaos, Kíli is wounded by a Morgul arrow. Legolas and Tauriel are forced to halt their pursuit of the Dwarves in order to end the Orc onslaught. One captive is imprisoned and questioned by Thranduil. When Thranduil learns that "The One" has returned, he decides to seal off his kingdom to protect it from the impending evil. However, Tauriel leaves to save Kíli, whom she learns has been poisoned by Bolg's arrow, and Legolas accompanies her.

Subsequently, the Company meets a man named Bard, and they bribe him to smuggle them into Lake-town, where the descendants of Dale made their home, and where the Master of the town rules with an iron fist. The group attempts to steal weapons before being captured and in the process learn that Bard is a descendant of Dale's ruler, Girion, who died attempting to kill Smaug with Black Arrows. After Thorin convinces the townfolk and Master that they will share the riches of the recaptured Mountain, the adventurers receive a grand send-off the next morning. The injured Kíli is ordered to stay behind until he gets his strength back; Óin, Fíli and Bofur also remain to tend him in Bard's house.

As the events of Thorin's Company occurs, Gandalf reaches the remote tomb of the Nazgûl and found that they have been revived. He is joined by Radagast the Brown, and it is revealed that the Necromancer cannot be a mere human, as the Nazgûl answer only to one master. Returning to Mirkwood, while sending Radagast to warn Galadriel of their discovery, Gandalf enters the Orc- and Warg-infested Dol Guldur, and is attacked by Azog. While attempting to escape, the Necromancer appears, and, following a duel between the two, Gandalf is captured. With his worst fears realized – that the Necromancer is indeed Sauron – Gandalf watches in horror as the Orc army marches toward the Lonely Mountain.

Once at the Lonely Mountain, Bilbo deciphers the map's cryptic clue and uses moonlight to find the hidden keyhole that opens the secret door into the mountain. Balin then explains Bilbo's real purpose and sends him down to the treasury to locate the Arkenstone. Unfortunately, Bilbo's searching quickly awakens Smaug, who initially finds the Hobbit amusing, but swiftly tires of him and intends to kill him. In Lake-town, Bard hears the rumbling caused by Smaug's awakening and attempts to affix the last Black Arrow to the town's launcher, but is arrested. Óin, Fíli, Bofur, and Bard's daughters, Sigrid and Tilda, are attacked by Bolg's hunting party before Legolas and Tauriel drive them off, with the latter remaining behind to tend to Kíli. Then, in a dream-like state after his medication, Kíli admits his love for Tauriel. After convincing Thorin that they must help Bilbo, the Dwarves enter the Mountain and find themselves and the Hobbit being hunted by Smaug. Tricking the fire-breathing Smaug into rekindling the forges, they attempt to kill the dragon by drowning him in a flood of molten gold. However, Smaug survives, and stumbles out of the mountain determined to make the people of Lake-town suffer for giving aid to the Dwarves, leaving Bilbo horrified at the turn of events.

[edit] Deviations from the source material

The film covers the seventh through twelfth chapters of The Hobbit with a few elements added from the Appendices from The Lord of the Rings. While it generally follows the story, a number of liberties were still taken:

  • Thorin's encounter with Gandalf at the Prancing Pony in which the Wizard urges him to take back Erebor was not a chance meeting as it was in Tolkien's writings, but rather orchestrated by Gandalf himself.
  • Instead of crossing Mirkwood's Enchanted River by boat, Bilbo and the Dwarves climb on vines that extend across the river. This scene is only seen in the Extended Edition of the film.
  • In the book, Thorin was captured separately before the rest of the Company and kept captive in his own room (where he was treated and fed well) when he wouldn't reveal his purpose for being in Mirkwood. The other Dwarves weren't told he was there.
  • Thranduil guesses the purpose of the Company's mission was to retake Erebor, and tries to make a deal with Thorin. In the book, he is oblivious to this.
  • Thranduil at first allowed the other Dwarves to move about freely within his halls, but he finally locked them up, each to his own cell, because they were being obnoxious and insulting in the book. In the film, they are immediately locked up.
  • Neither Legolas nor Tauriel appear in the book. Indeed, the latter character is a creation of the filmmakers.
  • Bilbo hides the Dwarves in the barrels (with no tops) while the chief guard and Galion the butler were asleep, and he launches them into the river himself. In the book, the Elves themselves later pushed the barrels (which they thought were empty; they were also covered with lids) through the trapdoor and opened the portcullis at the water-gate to let the barrels into the river.
  • In the book, the portcullis was a grate lowered down across the opening (the water-gate) that let the stream from the cave flow out into the river. In the film, the portcullis was a side-swinging type, and it wouldn't have kept anybody inside the cave because it was outside on the river.
  • There is a pursuit by the Elves after the Dwarves' escape from the Elvenking's Halls (where the Elves did not yet know how the Dwarves had escaped), and the pack of Orcs who were pursuing the Company in the previous film catch up and attack as the barrels float down the river. The Elves then counterattack the Orcs.
  • Kíli is struck with a Morgul arrow by Bolg during the barrel escape when trying to open the water-gate, and it slowly saps his strength through the rest of the film. He is ultimately healed by Tauriel (who uses athelas to do so) in Lake-town, where his health had become critical. No such incident occurs in Tolkien's works.
  • Bard meets the Dwarves on the river, and Balin convinces him to smuggle the Company into Lake-town in the barrels. In the book, Raft-elves intercepted the barrels and made them into a raft they steered down the river to Long Lake where Men in boats pulled it into Lake-town with the undiscovered Dwarves still inside and Bilbo (still wearing his Ring) invisibly riding along.
  • In addition to Bain, Bard has two other children: daughters Sigrid and Tilda. He is also revealed to be a widower.
  • The Master of Lake-town has a majordomo in the film: Alfrid. He frequently informs the Master of various goings-on in the town, particularly the rumors of people plotting to possibly unseat him from his position of power - Bard, in particular. In the book, the Master had various aides who were unnamed and only briefly mentioned.
  • Due to his worsening condition, Thorin refuses to let Kíli go up to the Mountain with the rest of the Company. Fíli and Óin opt to stay behind to look after him. Additionally, Bofur gets left behind after oversleeping. All thirteen Dwarves went up to the Mountain in the book.
  • In the Extended Edition of the film, Gandalf encounters a gaunt, bewildered Thráin II while investigating Dol Guldur. He somewhat heals the Dwarf's insanity, and Thráin helps guide him through the fortress, also revealing that his father's ring had been entrusted to him and had ultimately been cut from his finger and taken from him by Azog during the Battle of Azanulbizar. Thráin is ultimately swallowed up by Sauron just before the Dark Lord reveals himself to Gandalf. This is evidently a reworking of the encounter of the two that took place in T.A. 2850 made to fit into the film trilogy's events, though Thráin does not give Thrór's Map and Erebor's Back Door key to Gandalf in the film (having done so on a previous, unseen occasion), nor does Gandalf not ever realise the Dwarf's identity during the meeting.
  • In the book, the last rays of the setting sun on Durin's Day reveal the keyhole to the secret door into the Lonely Mountain, as predicted by the runes on the map. In the film, the light of the moon reveals the keyhole after the sun has set.
  • Bard is imprisoned toward the end of the film, purely because the Master sees him as a threat.
  • Bolg's Orc pack arrives in Lake-town to ambush the remaining Dwarves, but are foiled by the arrival of Legolas and Tauriel. They retreat once they realize Thorin has already reached the Mountain.
  • Bilbo has only one audience with Smaug, and does not take a gold cup from him. He also takes his Ring off not long after the Dragon detects his presence.
  • Smaug seems fully aware of Thorin and Company's presence, as well as Sauron's impending attack on the Dwarves.
  • The climax of the film is an involved battle between Thorin's Dwarves and Smaug inside of the Lonely Mountain, in which they ultimately try (unsuccessfully) to drown the beast in molten gold after re-lighting the forges. In the book, the Dwarves never see the Dragon at all; by the time they head downstairs to the Dragon's lair, Smaug is long gone (in fact, although they don't know it at that point, he's already dead).
