Billy Boyd's 'The Hobbit' Song 'Last Goodbye' Debuts a Music Video
Last month we learned that Lord of the Rings star Billy Boyd would sing for Middle Earth again by delivering the credits song for the final chapter in Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of The Hobbit. The song is called "The Last Goodbye," and while the audio has been making the rounds online, we're glad we waited to call attention to the track itself until now. That's because a music video was just released for the song that is a big nostalgic trip for fans of both Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit franchises. Shots of Billy Boyd in the recording studio are intercut with footage from all the films, and it's rather touching. Watch!

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in 48FPS 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. The Battle of the Five Armies arrives in theaters in HFR, IMAX & 3D on December 17th later this year. It all ends in December - see you then.
