Disney Characters as Warriors of Azeroth

LiberLibelula‘s redesign of Snow White as if she were a World of Warcraft character would explain why she hung out with all those dwarven men. But there are six other redesigns for you to check out in this gallery. For the rest of Liber’s art, check out her DeviantArt page!

…okay, but also, Pocahontas is totally a Night Elf Druid, Stitch is a Goblin, the Beast is a Worgen Warrior, Merida is a Dwarf Hunter, and Ariel is a Human.

How to Braid Your (Long) Hair into a Gimli Beard

Middle school English teacher Marcella Clinard used this costume to threaten her students with a good axing if they didn’t read The Lord of the Rings. And she’s willing to tell other people who are long of hair and short of beard how to do the same.

Dwarf Your Cares Away, Smaug is for Another Day, Let the Hobbits Play, Dwarves in Fraggle Rock

Writes Euclase:

I thought it might be nice if, instead of a dragon, the Dwarves found Fraggles in their mountain. And they became friends and sang songs and ate radishes. And nobody had to die.

The Hobbit Is Still Releasing TV Spots

“What, still?” you say.

“Yup,” I respond.

“But the movie comes out three days from now,” you insist.

“Yeah, but it’s nearly three hours long, they couldn’t possibly show us the whole thing just in commercials before then. They can only try.”

It is a gift!

Here’s All the Footage From Every The Hobbit Ad, Arranged Chronologically in One Video

Joatmonjb has done us a great favor today. The Youtube user has taken all of the footage revealed in The Hobbit‘s TV spots and trailers, and reordered it in as close to the order those clips will appear in the movie as we can tell. Sure, it make for a seven minute film that’s mostly dwarves sitting around and eating Bilbo’s food, but just think of it as a Thanksgiving tie in.

How Many Dwarves Can You Fit On A Hobbit Poster?

This new poster for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is almost as packed as a wine barrel leaving Mirkwood. Those dwarves giving the “sexy-eyes” really stand out from the crowd, don’t they?

Billy Connolly Joins Cast of The Hobbit

You know, I’d assumed that the cast of The Hobbit movies was just about solid, but I suppose I’d reckoned without the movie’s overwhelming need to find weathered older men to play approximately five billion dwarves.

Am I complaining? Nope.
