Disney Characters as Warriors of Azeroth

i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

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

There And Back Again

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. (via Neatorama.) Previously in How To

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

Peanut Butter and Chocolate

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

All this has happened before...

"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."

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

It is a gift!

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. (via Bleeding Cool.)

How Many Dwarves Can You Fit On A Hobbit Poster?

There And Back Again

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? (via Empire) Previously in The Hobbit

Billy Connolly Joins Cast of The Hobbit

There And Back Again

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.

We Only Have One Year Until The Hobbit

and let it be known

I said it earlier this summer when Harry Potter was wrapping up, in a moment of pure old-lady-sitting-on-a-porch unfairness, that my high-school-experience-defining movie series was coming back with all the same production personas, plus ten years of advancements in special effects, for two more movies so there. And you know what, I stand by that. The Hobbit comes out in a year, on December 14th 2012 (just cutting in six days before the Mayan apocalypse) and fittingly, the production has released its first official plot synopsis. As if you needed to know.

There And Back Again

Good News Everyone: New Zealand is going to get to see The Hobbit before the rest of us do. Wait, no. That's not the one I wanted to say. Hobbiton is becoming an official, permanent tourist destination. There we go.

Aaaand Here’s Some More Hobbits. I Mean Dwarves! From The Hobbits

There And Back Again

Left to right, Stephen Hunter as Bombur (aka the one who invites reader envy by being able to sleep through all that interminably long Mirkwood stuff), James Nesbitt as Bofur and William Kircher as Bifur. Looks like somebody in Thorin and Co. remembered that if they're going to go conquer lair of a giant-millenia-old-fire-breathing-dragon-owned mountain, ten Multiclassed Dwarf Fighters and one Halfling Rogue is really overkill, and they'll need somebody who knows how to mine if they're ever going to make a long-term profit off the place once they pay off the adventurers tax on that hoard, not to mention all the trouble they might get into over the Arkenstone, so lets pick up some peasants along the way. Just tell them we'll pay for all their beer. (via Facebook.)
