Although having a big part in the movie, Azog the Orc is long dead at the start of the book, only mentioned once as the killer of Thrór (Thorin's grandfather). According to the Appendices of the Lord of the Rings novels, Azog killed Thrór when the latter had wandered into the mines of Moria alone. This led to a nine-year war between Dwarves and Orcs that culminated in the Battle of Azanulbizar outside the gates of Moria, where Azog was killed by Thorin's second cousin Dáin. The movie includes the battle but has Azog only lose an arm, making him one of the returning villains in the trilogy instead. See more »

My dear Frodo, you asked me once if I had told you everything there was to know about my adventures. And while I can honestly say I've told you the truth, I may not have told you all of it. I am old, Frodo. I am not the same hobbit as I once was. It is time for you to know what really happened.

Let me start by saying that i have never watched any of the Lord of The Rings movies before.I was told to start with the hobbit. I was amazed at how cool this franchise must be as i loved every minute of it.I kinda feel ashamed for not giving this series a try earlier. 8/10 from me ,yeah that good.
