The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies will have its own Peter Jackson-led presentation at Comic-Con in San Diego later this month, it was reported.
According to a press release from Warner Bros. Entertainment, the third installment of the J.R.R. Tolkien-based movie will take the main stage.
“Warner Bros. Pictures brings three of its most hotly anticipated films to this year’s Con: Peter Jackson will be on the main stage with ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,'” it says.
The confirmation comes as Jackson talked about the teaser trailer.
“Yes – there will be a Hobbit Trailer” he wrote on his Facebook. “But like the previous two years, it’s not going to be released until around Oct.”
He added: “The complex VFX work requires 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…”
The film will come out in December.
