'The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies' Director Reveals Details Of 45 Minute Final Fight Scene [Spoilers].

The ending fight scene of "The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies" will be for 45 minutes, the director reportedly revealed in an interview. The movie is slated to be released on Dec 26, 2014 in Australia. The movie will see five armies will clash for the riches of the Lonely Mountain and the future of Middle-earth. [Spoiler Alert]

Accommodating the huge armies of five races in the upcoming movie may be difficult. The director, Peter Jackson, revealed just how difficult it is in an interview to ( E! Weekly . The final battle will take place at the foot of the Lonely Mountain, which is now controlled by Thorin and the dwarves.

The race of men, elves and eagles will be supporting the dwarves against the orcs. Readers who have seen the previous movie will remember that Sauron had sent a huge legion of his army under the command of Azog the Defiler in secret. "The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies" will see the orcs and their wargs attacking the Lonely Mountain in big numbers.

The director's notes show that the race of men, dwarves and elves defend the mountain, while three other armies attack the orcs from behind. An army led by Bard will attack from the east, an army of dwarves will attack from the south-east, Beorn will attack from the south and another army of elves will attack from west.

Unlike in the previous movies where the eagles come in at the end and save the day, the eagles will be a part of the war preparation from the very beginning, according to the director. He said that the author of the books, J.R.R. Tolkien, used the eagles in a way that they would show up "out of the blue" and change the tide of the battle very quickly. That however may not happen in "The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies."

The director also joked that if the eagles were able to bring Frodo to Mount Doom, then the "Lord of the Rings" movies would have been very short. The director is however conscious about a possible "battle fatigue" if the war scenes drag on without showing the main characters.

A lot of planning will be involved for the 45 minute long battle scene in "The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies." The director has to ensure that the large armies picture well in the valley and do not appear to "fill up" the valley or appear as a "speck." Will the director be able to pull of the gigantic battle scene without losing the interest of the audience?
