The Hobbit: The Last Goodbye

What a long journey it's been for the Baggins family. Peter Jackson's final movie about Middle Earth comes out December 17th, and the music video that will play over the credits of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has just been released, and it's a doozy. Titled "The Last Goodbye," it's performed by Billy Boyd who played Pippin in the original Lord of the Rings trilogy. The song serves as both the last glimpse of Middle Earth and as a farewell to us, the audience. The video features shots of him singing and playing guitar along with plenty of clips from The Hobbit trilogy as well as the Lord of the Rings trilogy. In addition to that, there are behind the scenes shots of the cast and crew having tons of fun on set. It makes me really want to go home and watch the Lord of the Rings again, and makes me excited for the last movie in the series.

Boyd has a beautiful Scottish voice, and you should remember him singing "Edge of Night" for Denethor in Return of the King. The song was used in a previous trailer for The Hobbit and here's the performance from Return of the King in case you forgot.
