The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Trailer is finally here, and with it, the first look at Benedict Cumberbatch's big scaly fire breathing dragon. The British actor voices Smaug in the second of Peter Jackson's trilogy, which appears for a couple of seconds at the end of the new trailer - however, we still haven't heard the beast's voice and really hope he utters something in the actual movie, or it could be a miserable pay-packet for our Benedict.

Mainly, it's the old characters that have been called upon to hype the latest film, with the dwarves playing a prominent role in the trailer and Bilbo looking a bit bewildered as usual. However, we are treated to the return of Orlando Bloom's Legolas - who literally slides into the trilogy - and Luke Evans' Bard the Bowman. The latter had a minor role in the previous film though is believed to be crucial to The Desolation of Smaug and There And Back Again. According to Yahoo Moves, the Bowman is tasked with stopping the terrifying dragon after warning the dwarves, "If you awaken that beast you will destroy us all."

Another point of note from the trailer is Evangeline Lilly's Tauriel, which Peter Jackson has literally made up. Tolkien never wrote such character, so the New Zealand director risks the wrath of J.R.R fans with his latest creation. Lilly - of Lost fame - gets right into the action anyway, declaring "It is our fight!"

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13, 2013. It stars Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen and others.
