Orlando Bloom Says Goodbye To The Hobbit

Orlando Bloom The Hobbit

The other day, Sir Ian McKellen filmed his last scene as Gandalf for The Hobbit trilogy. Now, it's Orlando Bloom's turn to say goodbye to playing his character Legolas Greenleaf.

Earlier today, director Peter Jackson posted an Orlando Bloom goodbye video to his You Tube channel. Peter Jackson wrote, "A day after saying goodbye to Gandalf and Tauriel, it was time to farewell Legolas. What a great day it was, with Orlando battling a serious Orc for all 12 hours of shooting - part of the Battle of the 5 Armies for the third Hobbit movie. When we finally got the day done, we said goodbye to Orlando, had a couple of beers ... and couldn't resist doing this!"

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is scheduled to be released on December 13, 2014 and The Hobbit: There and Back Again is scheduled to be released on December 17, 2014.
