My Reaction to The Battle Trailer Illustrated in Gifs

Hey, everyone!

   Now, if you're a Hobbit fan, I hope you already know about the trailer for the Battle of the Five Armies that came out yesterday. If not, click here to watch it!

   Quick backstory, we didn't realize that it was going to come out when it did. Yes, we saw the short "Coming Tomorrow" video, but when Willow read the time, she thought it would come out at twelve o'clock at night. Later, we saw on a pin that it was up right then and there, at twelve in the afternoon! So, we watched the trailer (while filming our reactions, which is a whole other post) and totally freaked!

   Okay, so I promised gifs, and here they come :) These of of my (and some of Willow's) reactions before, during, and after the trailer.

When we saw that the trailer was up, Willow and I basically looked like this...

*freakin' out*

And then, it started. The New Line Cinema emblem appeared.

*dis gonna be gooooood*

 And then Smaug suddenly roars and breathes fire

*Durin's beard that startled me*

Tauriel appears

*sorry guys, I just had to*

"Those who survived, and those who did not." 


Pippin's song starts playing, "Home is behind..."

"Until the stars are all alight..." The Dwarves are walking in their armor, and (the soon-to-be-deceased) Kili is seen

*why you do dis to me?!*

It looks like Legolas's eyes are filling with tears

*wat are my feels doin'*

"Will you have peace, or war?" "All shall fade..." "I will have war!"

*why you gotta play me like dis*

"Will you follow me? One last time."

*raises hand as high as is humanly possible*

And after. At first, it's freaking out again.

Then, it's sitting and silently contemplating

And back to crying

My dad comes home and I show him the trailer

And then, to make it worse, I lay in bed and listen to "Into the West"

Why does it have to go so soon? It's all going to be over in December. And to kill my inner feels even more, I read this...

"This is the last time we’ll all be united as Tolkien fans for the sake of one trailer. Just know that I love you all and I would gladly sail to the Grey Havens with you at the end of this adventure."
... and I added this... "<-- If this is to end in fire, then we will all burn together."

We only have so long to wait, until it's all over. I hope I've made your feels even stronger with this post. You're welcome :')



  1. I am right there with you two! If I was a crier I would have come very close to crying.

  2. Darrion, those gifs perfected my feels whilst I watched that trailer like five times. I could still sit and cry about it now thinking of it. But I shall gladly follow them one last time. Though I don't want it to be the last time. Thank you for sharing your feels!
