The newly released trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has inspired a lot of reactions: excitement over Orlando Bloom’s return, disappointment over the lack of Benedict Cumberbatch’s dulcet tones, confusion over how the rest of the relatively short novel can be divided into two more feature length films. Uberfans Kellie and Alex of TheOneRing.net filmed their reaction to watching the trailer for the first time (which involves a lot of screaming, jumping, and hugging), and now there is a video of some of the film’s stars reacting to that reaction video. Peter Jackson screened the fan video on set for Evangeline Lilly, Orlando Bloom, and Lee Pace and released a video of their reaction on his Facebook page. The three costumed stars are adorably engrossed by Kellie and Alex's excitement, and Lilly admits, “This might be more intense than the trailer.” Presumably Kellie and Alex will now release a reaction video to this reaction video which will just set off an endless chain of reaction videos until the end of time when we all fall into Mount Doom.
