Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

After climbing down the Carrock, Thorin's company encounters the bear form of a charging skin-changer named Beorn. Gandalf urges the company to seek refuge in a nearby house, which happens to be the abode of Beorn's human-form. After admitting hating Orcs more than he does Dwarves, Beorn loans his horses to the company so that they can outrun the pursuing Orcs.

Meanwhile, Azog, the leader of the Orcs, is summoned to Dol Guldur where he is given command of an orc army. He then gives his son, Bolg, the task of hunting the dwarves.

Gandalf departs before the others enter the forest of Mirkwood, urging Bilbo and the dwarves to follow the path and to wait for him before entering the mountain. After losing their way in the forest, the dwarves are captured by giant spiders. Bilbo, with the help of the One Ring, manages to free them from the webs of the spiders. However, while fighting the attacking spiders, the dwarves are captured by the Wood-elves.

Later, Tauriel, a female elf, becomes enamoured with Kíli, evoking feelings of jealousy within Legolas, the son of the Elvenking, Thranduil.

Under the cloak of his ring, Bilbo steals the keys and helps the dwarves to escape from the Elf Kingdom using empty wine barrels that float down the river. Along the way, they are attacked by the Orcs lead by Bolg, who had been lying in wait. While trying to open the river gate, Kíli is injured by a poisoned orc arrow, fired by Bolg.

Shortly after, Bilbo and the company meet Bard, a bowman and descendant of the original Lord of Dale, who was waiting to collect the empty barrels in his river barge. Pooling their coins to bribe Bard to smuggle them inside Lake-town, the gang are eventually captured by the Master of the Town when they try to steal battle-worthy weaponry. After Thorin convinces the townfolk and Master that they will share the riches of the recaptured mountain, the adventurers receive a grand send-off. Óin, Fíli, and Bofur stay behind to attempt to heal Kíli.

Meanwhile, the Elvenking learns from a captured orc that the dark lord has returned, and so decides to seal off the Elf Kingdom to protect it from the impending evil. However, Tauriel leaves to help the injured Kíli and a concerned Legolas gives chase.

At the Lonley Mountain, Bilbo deciphers the Last Light of Durin's Day clue and uses the moonlight to find the hidden keyhole that opens the secret door into the mountain. After entering, Bilbo attempts to steal the Arkenstone by himself, but is discovered by the awakened dragon, Smaug.

Gandalf, after sending Radagast away with a message for Galadriel, knowingly steps into the orc-ambushed Dol Guldur and engages the Necromancer in a fierce battle that ends with Gandalf's capture.

Bard and his son leave to hide the last Black Arrow; the only thing that can kill Smaug. But Bard is arrested while his son still finds a place to hide the arrow. But at Bard's house, Óin, Fíli, Bofur and Bard's daughters are attacked by Bolg and the orcs. The elf pair of Legolas and Tauriel arrive in the nick of time to fight off the attacking orcs before splitting up: Tauriel stays with Óin, Fíli, and Bofur to attend to Kíli, while Legolas chases after Bolg and the retreating orcs.

Eventually, the dwarves enter the mountain to rescue Bilbo. Tricking the fire-breathing Smaug into rekindling the forge using his his own flames, they attempt to kill the dragon by drowning him in molten gold. However, Smaug stumbles out of the mountain and takes to the air, shaking off the gold-coating. Bilbo watches in horror as Smaug flies toward Lake-Town to wreak havoc and to seek revenge...

Building Sets Based on Epic Film Trilogy and Forthcoming Theatrical Release Slated for 2012

Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group announced today a partnership that awards the world’s leading construction toy brand exclusive rights to develop build-and-play construction sets based on THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ trilogy and the two films based on THE HOBBIT™. The multi-year licensing agreement grants access to the library of characters, settings, and stories for THE LORD OF THE RINGS property, as well as films The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again.

LEGO THE LORD OF THE RINGS construction sets are slated for a rolling global launch beginning in June 2012 in the United States, with LEGO THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY scheduled for later in the year.

“Only LEGO, with their expertise in the construction category, is capable of doing justice to the incredibly imaginative environments depicted in the world of THE LORD OF THE RINGS and the two films based on THE HOBBIT,” said Karen McTier, executive vice president, domestic licensing and worldwide marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “These films give life to amazing worlds and characters and we are thrilled to bring fans these products that deliver an imaginative play experience befitting of these beloved properties.”

The LEGO THE LORD OF THE RINGS collection will translate into LEGO form the epic locations, scenes and characters of Middle-earth as depicted in all three films, including The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

In late 2012, LEGO THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY will give fans of all ages a chance to build and play out the fantastical story and new characters of the legendary Middle-earth adventures depicted in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey from Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, slated to premiere December 14, 2012.

"Our collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products has delivered numerous worldwide successes in the construction toy aisle with lines like LEGO HARRY POTTER and LEGO BATMAN, introducing us to loyal audiences who love great stories, strong characters and the toys that they inspire,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president, licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. “It’s particularly exciting to now be able to create sets based on the fantasy worlds and characters from THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy and the two films based on THE HOBBIT, not only because we know they will foster collectability and creative play, because these are two properties that our fans have been asking us to create for years."

Information about the sets and collectible minifigures from both collections will be unveiled at a later date at
