Wellington is preparing a big welcome to the world for Hobbit Premiere Can't Post

In just about 2 months from now, travelers from around the world will descend upon Wellington to celebrate the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Some will be cast and crew who worked on the film, others will be studio executives involved in the creation of the film, and still others will be an International Press Corp writing stories about the film. And mingling amongst all these creative types will be fans from around New Zealand and the rest of the world, including TheOneRing.net, and you can be amongst all this excitement by joining our tour. You will find further details at TORn's Hobbit Premiere Tour.

 

Just today, it was announced that WETA is designing a welcome surprise for display at the Wellington Airport. It is said to be interactive and breathtaking, and this reporter can't wait to see it for myself when I arrive there. You can read more about it in WETA's newsletter. Join the discussion on our message boards and let us know who or what you think will be on display at the Wellington Airport.

It's too early for Smaug. [In reply to] Can't Post

I doubt we'll see any displays with the dragon until film 3 (after we've seen him in film 2).

I'm picking it's the interior of Bag End.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Suspended???? [In reply to] Can't Post

Whatever it is, it's suspended in the air, is 13 meters long and 3 meters tall, which is huge. And it's interactive. That just screams some sort of living critter. I mean, not actually alive, but the image of something living that has the ability to interact. Bag End could not interact with people.


Hmmm, I'm not inclined to think its Bert, Tom and Bill.

Hmm. [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't read the newsletter so didn't catch that bit. Maybe it is a dragon after all.

(It won't be a spider - not only are they evidently not in AUJ, but I doubt Wellington Airport wants to welcome visitors by scaring the living heck out of them.)

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."

Lol [In reply to] Can't Post

No, I think not. But a plane sized Dragon certainly would be uber cool. But alas, it probably is too early.

A stone giant lieing down? [In reply to] Can't Post

A dragon seems most likely. Can't wait to find out what it is.

OK, I would vote for Eagles in lieu of a Dragon if I could ride on it.
