Peter Jackson, the director of the trilogy (also the director of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy), The Battle of the Five Armies describes the movie as the Defining Chapter of the trilogy.
Bilbo, Gandalf and the Company of Dwarves led by Thorin are forced to be involved in a war against an armed legions of Orcs' and Wargs' combatants as well as the terrifying fire-breathing dragon Smaug from acquiring a kingdom full of gold and treasures and destroying all of Middle-Earth.
The five armies involved in these epic battle are the Men of Esgaroth and Dale, the legendary Elves from the Elven-realm of Northern Mirkwood also known as the Woodland Realms led by Thranduil, and the Dwarves of Erebor against the fearsome and frightening armies of Orcs as well as the Wargs from the Misty Mountains.
