An epic fantasy adventure film directed by Peter Jackson. It is the second installment of a three-part film adaptation based on the 1937 novel The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien. The Hobbit (film and novel) is the introduction to the famous story of The Lord of the Rings, by the same author, which also has been turned into a movie trilogy.

You can listen to this closing credits song from the soundtrack of the movie here: I See Fire.

Where does your journey end?

You seek that which would bestow upon you the right to rule.

The quest to reclaim a homeland and slay a dragon.

Do not think I won't kill you, Dwarf.

When did we allow evil to become stronger than us?

It is not our fight.

This is our fight.

What if it's a trap?

It's undoubtedly a trap.

Such is the nature of evil.

In time, all foul things come forth.

If you awaken that beast, you will destroy us all.

Was that an earthquake?

That, my lad was a dragon.
