Smaug Announces Endorsement for Rand Paul 2016 In Exclusive Colbert Report Interview

Never laugh at a live dragon, mothaf***a.

Among other things, Smaug also believes that his negative portrayal in the media is due to a liberal Hollywood bias, calls out the dragon triplets from Game of Thrones, invokes the Stand Your Ground law while defending his attempted murder of Bilbo Baggins, corrects Colbert's pronunciation of his name, and calls Benedict Cumberbatch a hack.

Everything That Happens In The Tolkien Universe After The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

First things first: Yes, even before Peter Jackson sat down to make the film, we knew what would happen after The Hobbit.

Peter Jackson’s Third Hobbit Film Officially Has A New Name

There And Back Again

Oh dammit! Just the other day we had a report on how recent trademark applications meant Peter Jackson's last film in The Hobbit series might be getting a title other than the previously announced, The Hobbit: There and Back Again. Now we've got confirmation from the horse's mouth.
