Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release
It's interesting that there's been neither hide nor scale nor mention of Smaug in the trailers so far... I think that there's a bit of pressure on WETA here. After what they did in LotR they basically are expected to redefine the on-screen dragon's realism, and given how high they've set the bar it's going to be a challenge. It's one of the things I'm most looking forward to in this project.
