Baby dragons are essentially winged, fire-breathing cats.

A cat that can talk and set your curtains on fire

Which acts like it hates you but begrudgingly curls up on your lap while you’re reading

I reblog in honor of my own Smaug the tyrannical and excessively fluffy

‘The Hobbit: Unexpected Journey’ modern trailer


fuck I just really want to write a Modern AU for the Hobbit and aaaaaa

OH MY GOD. This is me screaming. Dear video creator: subbing in John Porter for Thorin? Is someone paying you to kill me?

Oh holy crap. Seriously, holy crap.

Wow, this is really well-done.


Glorious. Want to see the Desolation one!

"In order to shoot the dwarves and a large Gandalf, we couldn’t be in the same set. All I had for company was 13 photographs of the dwarves on top of stands with little lights – whoever’s talking flashes up. Pretending you’re with 13 other people when you’re on your own, it stretches your technical ability to the absolute limits. I cried, actually. I cried. Then I said out loud, ‘This is not why I became an actor’. Unfortunately the microphone was on and the whole studio heard.”

Sir Ian McKellen

Green screen acting is the hardest you guys.

Martin Freeman in The Blind Banker, the episode that convinced Peter Jackson to do whatever he had to so that Martin could play Bilbo.  Thank-you, PJ, thank-you.

I remember an article from that time, when everyone was like holy shit they’re putting the godamn Hobbit on hold so the lead actor can film a - comparatively - tiny British TV show. <3

Every talent rep’s dream. Well earned.

First official poster, via Peter Jackson on Facebook.

I’m getting excited again and when I get excited my expectations go up and when my expectations go up I get disappointed because Unexpected Journey was not as structurally sound as Fellowship was but this one will involve stuff actually happening and they won’t have to manufacture conflict. Also maybe battle ready Galadriel? Oh hell, I’m excited again.

At school we used to call this “icon work,” the spirit of the source but not an imitation.
