The first of what is sure to be many The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies character posters has been revealed as this franchise comes to its epic conclusion in December. Check out Lee Pace as Thranduil in the defining chapter of director Peter Jackson's epic fantasy adventure.
Thranduil, son of Oropher, was an Elven king who ruled over the Woodland Realm in the Second and Third Ages. Though inherently cautious, he eventually committed his kingdom to fighting Sauron in the War of the Ring. He was also the father of the elven prince of Mirkwood, Legolas, who was a member of the Fellowship of the Ring.
