'The Hobbit' Trailer Fan Reaction Video Watched By Orlando Bloom, Lee Pace & Evangeline Lilly

Some smiles for a Friday: After two young "Lord of the Rings" fans known as "Happy Hobbit" posted a YouTube video of their reactions to the new trailer for "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," director Peter Jackson did the fans one better. Jackson, who directed all three "Lord of the Rings" and is completing work on "The Hobbit" trilogy, showed the fans' video to "Hobbit" cast members Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly and Lee Pace and posted the result on his Facebook page.

"That's awesome. That's funny," Bloom says at the end of the video. Indeed, Legolas. Watch the stars watch the kids watch the trailer in the video above. The original clip of the "Happy Hobbit" pair enjoying "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" trailer is below.

"The Desolation of Smaug," the second of three "Hobbit" films, is out in December.
