Yeah, very cool.

It would have been neat if they'd done a poster similar to this one, but with Gandalf, Bilbo, and the Dwarves instead.

Who knows, they might still do that. *crosses fingers*

Entertainment Weekly has posted a long photo scroll of ten different scenes stiched together. It's really cool and it includes our first look at Beorn!

Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

I took a closer look at this and I noticed something that I can't quite identify. In the scene next to Bag End, directly above the giant stone pot, there's something lurking in the woods. Is that another form of Beorn or something else? It doesn't look like a warg because we see what they look like further down.

It's either Bill, Bert, or Tom, I presume.

I thought of that but the size and shape doesn't seem right, especially in comparison to how we've seen their lower bodies (in the trailer).

One of the Goblins from under the Misty Mountains? AFAIK, we haven't seen those designs yet.

Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

TheOneRing.Net has posted a scene-by-scene analysis of the Scroll. In regards to my earlier question, TORN believes its the trolls, although oddly they refer to only two. In closer examination I see all three of them (one on the right side and two on the left).

It has to be the trolls, chronologically speaking.

Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

Yeah and it fits with the stone cauldron and the dwarves being tied up. I just don't like the appearance of them but the lighting is pretty poor to properly judge.

I love how this thing is basically a summary of the first movie. I found a link (via TheOneRing.net) to a much larger version. Check it out. It's almost 9000 pixels wide.

They look a lot less human than expected. I only noticed the closer one, and I though it was some kind of cat or something. I didn't even think of the Trolls.

And now there's talk of a possible trilogy, I don't know if I like that idea or not.
