'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' First Trailer: Oh Yes, There Will Be Dragons

Smaug the Magic Draaagon / Is made of CGI / He's in a mountain full of Gold and thinks riddles are super flyyyy

I just made that up — that's how excited I am for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. As someone who loved the book, I was both bored and disappointed by the first Hobbit movie, but this one promises to be darker, more action-packed, and it has a dragon. That's right — despite your low expectations, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will, in fact, feature Smaug. (And one voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch, no less.)

Not only do we Legolas back (hiii Orlando — it's been a while), but did I mention a dragon? Because I'm sort of excited by it. Yes, we'll see hobbits, more dwarves (sweet), and Gandalf (yo, what's up?), but there is a motherfucking dragon in this motherfucking movie. So get pumped for riddle-offs, scenic trips down a river in barrels, and oh yeah... a dragon.
