The final chapter in the action epic will be charging onto high-definition in March.
Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug (Cumberbatch), Thorin Oakenshield (Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves have unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo (Freeman) frantically attempts to make him see reason, which eventually drives the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf (McKellan), the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide: unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.
Each combo pack release will feature 1080p video, a lossless 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: New Zealand: Home of Middle Earth - Part 3; Recruiting the Five Armies; Completing Middle-earth; The Last Goodbye Music Video; Theatrical and "Legacy" Trailers.
