Here's How The 'Hobbit' App Spoiled The Film's Ending

The HobbitNow, this picture of the sword is starting to come together.

If you’re like us, you can’t wait for the much-anticipated “Hobbit” film from Peter Jackson this December. We’ve seen plenty of behind-the-scenes photos, and a total of seven production films to date; however, we’re still hungry for more.

Last week, distributors Warner Bros. and MGM released a “Hobbit Movies” app filled with exclusive photos, videos of the cast, and a giant plot-revealing scroll

Granted, nothing is truly “spoiled” as the film will closely follow the 1937 classic by J.R.R. Tolkien

We imagined the app would be a cool interactive feature to release ahead of the film; however, when everyone began pointing out that the end of the film “may be” revealed in the app, we took a closer look and realised the entire film – not just the end – is spoiled inside. 

If you’ve ever read the book like us, it’s a slight shock to see the entirety of the film right there. 

We’ve broken down the scroll to show how the film gets spoiled.

If you want to be somewhat surprised come December, we advise you to stray away.

Gandalf shows up at Bilbo Baggins house at Bag End unexpectedly, tricking him into hosting a feast for 13 dwarves.

There, the dwarves and Gandalf convince Bilbo to set out on a suicide mission ... er adventure to reclaim their treasure guarded by the dragon Smaug in the far off Lonely Mountain.

However, they attract some unwanted visitors in the form of trolls.

In comes Gandalf to save the day, and the crew carries on with some newly added weapons in tow.

Elrond also takes a closer look over some blades the group acquires.

Bilbo gets separated from the group while crossing the Misty Mountains, and uses his illuminated sword to find his way.

However, he's going to have a little trouble from Gollum first before rejoining the group.

When nothing seems to be working ...

... a kettle of eagles arrives to save the day.

Here's a look at the whole scene. We imagine the film will end here with the Lonely Mountain in the backdrop for the next film.

Now see who else is into sci-fi ...
