Pippin will return in The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. Or, at the very least, he'll appear on the soundtrack. Actor Billy Boyd has returned to Middle Earth to lend his pipes (yet again) to the drums of war. And you can listen to his entire song right now.
The aptly titled tune, "The Last Goodbye," will play over the end credits. And perhaps this will be the very last sweeping song we get from Peter Jackson's J.R.R. Tolkien years.
And just for fun, here's Boyd's previous work singing on Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which we can all agree is a lot more morbid than the new song. Sing on Pippin!
