Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has a new still making the rounds on the Internet today and it features everyone’s favorite elf Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and the new female elf created by Jackson for the movie, Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly). They’re all decked out in traveling clothes and weapons, and we can be sure they’ll be showing off those incredible elven martial arts skills with arrows flying left and right.
What do you think? There was some fan uproar about the addition of new characters to the story, but we’ll only really know how it turns out after the movie hits theaters and we get a look at Tauriel and her part in the saga.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theater screens December 13th.
