The Continuing Story - The Hobbit II Trailer.
The Hobbit II Trailer.|
My only disappointment about the Hobbit Trailer? Smaug is supposed to be covered in gold. That is what protects him from all the weapons of man, and it takes one really good shot from a freaking enchanted arrow by an incredible archer in the only weak spot on the dragon to take him down.
I realize that Red has been a tradition since Rankin/Bass edition, but they were wrong. I know it's what people expect, but I was hoping that the detail would have been realized.
As far as expanded Story stuff, it's fine. It'll be fun. I don't feel the movie would disappoint, but I really wanted the color to be right. It's still a great looking dragon, though.
*nitpick* his belly was covered with imbedded coins and gems, not entirely covered.
"There he lay, a vast red-golden dragon, fast asleep; thrumming came from his jaws and nostrils, and wisps of smoke, but his fires were low in slumber. Beneath him, under all his limbs and his huge coiled tail, and about him on all sides stretching away across the unseen floors, lay countless piles of precious things, gold wrought and unwrought, gems and jewels, and silver red-stained in the ruddy light. Smaug lay, with wings folded like an immeasurable bat, turned partly on one side, so that the hobbit could see his underparts and his long pale belly crusted with gems and fragments of gold from his long lying on his costly bed."
I still object, then, mainly because *I* read that as a shade of gold, not as a shade of red.
I'll let the nitpick stand.
