The first teaser of the upcoming final installment of The Hobbit trilogy dropped on Monday, showing off the Battle of the Five Armies.
The trailer, which runs for slightly under two minutes, shows off the main cast as they prepare for the upcoming fight or recover from dealing with Smaug, all while Pippin's song from Return of the King is played.
Before the song begins, Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins has his say noting, "One day I'll remember everything that happened: the good, the bad, those that survived -- and those that did not."
The trailer then cycles through scenes will all the big names featured, including Ian McKellen, Evangeline Lilly, Orlando Bloom, Lee Pace, Luke Evans and Cate Blanchett.
As the trailer closes out and shows the battle beginning, Richard Armitage's Thorin asks, "Will you follow me one last time?"
At San Diego Comic-Con, while whole cast was unable to attend, one unexpected face did show up to moderate: Stephen Colbert. He showed up with both him and his son in full costume for the panel on Saturday.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters later this year on Dec. 17.
