There And Back Again

Behind The Scenes Pics From The Hobbit


Yes Martin just stand on this box yes this box right here and look vaguely apprehensive and confused for three hours now we’ll cut in twenty minutes of old Gollum footage in the middle and basically that’s The Hobbit, yeah? Three hours of the Hobbit; i.e., you; so what could anyone complain about?

Peter get out of the way Peter we don’t care about you lets see some dwarves for heaven’s sake get back behind the camera and make your movie what are you doing.

No no we don’t care about these guys either I’m sure they’re very helpful and New Zealand is very pretty but if you could just show us a dwarf or two that would be…

Oh thank you… Nori?

I can’t decide whether I’m excited that, if done well, The Hobbit will give me the ability to be able to distinguish between all of its dwarf protagonists; or angry that, if the aforementioned happens, then I’ll be using valuable brain space to remember the names and faces of all of The Hobbit‘s dwarf protagonists.

    My best guess is they’re a breed like the Bashkir Curly http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curly_Horse

    Interesting problem for the production: find horses big enough to make the dwarves look small in comparison, but still with a pony-like body so they appear small in scale.

    I’m (pretty) sure the movie will be great, but gotta say so far from the pics and the trailer it looks more like a cartoon than a LOTR movie.  I hope they remember to add some drama.

    I’m not worried about being able to distinguish the dwarves.  Whenever I read the books, I picture all of them (save Thorin, Fili, Kili, and Bombur, obviously) as David the Gnome with different colored hats.

    The Hobbit is a much lighter novel (in tone) than LOTR. It is still a children’s book after all. And I’ve already memorized all the dwarves – it’s quite easy after watching the trailer on repeat for 3 hours straight o_o”

    Actually, yes. According to a set report I read (either at TheOneRing or aintitcool, I forget which), that’s how they got around the problem of needing to show dwarves on ponies when the dwarves are man-sized. They put shaggy fur coats on horses. Hopefully it wasn’t too hot out.
