This December marks the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Every now and again Peter Jackson, and co., lets us know why we’re still excited to see the rest of Bilbo’s story be told on the big screen. This right here is one of those moments.

If done right, this sequence has the potential to be the benchmark of the entire series. Check out the new image below (click to enlarge) and see what Stephen Fry and Bard the Bowman have to look forward to this Christmas. Comment below if you can spot the missing scale.
