    The Attack of the Wargs was a confrontation between Thorin and Company and the Wargs.


    After Bilbo rejoins the group once outside the Goblin Town, the moment of triumph is cut short as they are ambushed by Azog, Fimbul and his Hunter Orcs army. After taking refuge in cliffside trees before the Wargs uproot most of them, the final tree is partially uprooted, leaving most of Thorin's Company hanging over the cliffside. Gandalf uses his staff to set some nuts on fire and the Company throw them to the Orcs. Unfortunatly, it doesn't help much. Thorin then charges towards Azog in an attempt to save the others, but is badly wounded and knocked to the ground. Bilbo defends Thorin from being killed, and as Azog's other Orcs move in, trying to kill the Hobbit. Then FiliKili, and Dwalin rush in and attack them, while the others follow and a fight ensues. The group is then saved by eagles, who fly them to safety on the CarrockAzog then continus his hunt with the rest of his Orc army.

    Behind the SceneEdit

    This scene is filmed in Fiordland National Park.

    Portrayal in AdaptationsEdit



    LEGO 79002 Attack of the Wargs is a set that is featuring this scene. This set also includes Thorin Oakenshield, Bifur, Yazneg, 2 Hunter Orcs and 2 Wargs, in a total of 5 minifigures and 2 animal figure. This set has a burning tree(rotatable) and a small rock ledge.

    Video GameEdit

    It is featured in the 8th level of LEGO The Hobbit: The Video Game.


    • In The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneyYazneg does not appear in this scene despite being included in the set. Moreover, the white warg is rode by him. So Yazneg was possibly going to appear in this scene in the original script before it was altered, which may explain Yazneg's inclusion in the set.
