On the evening of July 3, 2014, filmmaker Peter Jackson posted an update on his Facebook page notifying his fans about the upcoming trailer for the third installment of his Hobbit films, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.”
Below is his entire message.
“Thank you all for your responses to my posting about Lorri and Damien’s book. Of course, many of you asked about the Hobbit Trailer. So, yes – there will be a Hobbit Trailer. But like the previous two years, it’s not going to be released until around Oct. The complex VFX work required to produce the battle shots we’re all wanting to see are simply not far enough along yet.
However … yesterday I finished work on a Teaser Trailer and that has just been delivered to Warner Bros. So no doubt this Teaser Trailer will be making it’s way into the world sometime soon…
As of 8:41 p.m., the teaser trailer has not been uploaded to the Warner Bros. site. “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” will hit theaters on December 17, 2014.
