Peter Jackson brought the finale of his adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy series, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, to this year's Comic-Con in a big way with a large portion of the cast attending, many of them having never been to Comic-Con previously. (You can read's live blog of the Warner Bros. Hall H panel here.)

On hand from the movie besides Jackson were his co-writer Philippa Boyens, 2nd unit director (and "Gollum") Andy Serkis and from the cast: Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood and Graham McTavish.

After the panel,, partnering with our pal William Bibbiani from "Most Craved," had a chance to talk to a small portion of the cast, basically Cate Blanchett and Lee Pace, returning as the high-powered elves Galadriel and Thranduil, respectively, and Luke Evans who plays the human Bard. (Unfortunately, Jackson didn't do the press line and we weren't able to get some of the others.)

First up, we asked Blanchett and Pace whether their characters get involved in the actual battle and how much footage was shot to expand The Hobbit into a trilogy:

Next is Luke Evans, who is asked about the pivotal moment where has to shoot a single arrow to try to stop the adversary from destroying Lake-town, plus we asked what it's been like joining Peter Jackson's ensemble cast as Bard, including many actors who had made "The Lord of the Rings" previously.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies comes out nationwide in all formats including IMAX 3D on December 17.
