Beorn's Shapeshifting? Can't Post

Trying to get ideas
How PJ&Co are gunna
Do that?

Now it's something
many writer's
use as a device,
BUT Once agian
JRRT produced & Re-introduced
ancient Legends
that are OverLooked?

Norse, Middle Europe, Africa
and American Indians, etc.

We all want PJ to do something
Extra-ordinary with this?

Could THIS be
something new?

Well I wonder ... [In reply to] Can't Post

Since he is described as a 'skin changer' by Gandalf if there will be a sort of slo-mo, skin stretching and pelt appearing effect...or a rolling inside-out sort of thing. Intriguing Bomby!

Manwe, when asked a simple "Yes" or "No" question, contemplated, and responded "the middle one."

We already have one clue as to what's going to happen here, it's called - Tissue [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's a quick explanation: http://youtu.be/r45e5Xky35k

And here's a much more extensive explanation: http://youtu.be/7VlthWa5pu8

Basically, Weta's creatures have full skeletal and muscular systems, so a transformation with this technology will be incredible. Expect lots of close-ups of muscles moving around under the skin as he changes Smile

Between Beorn and Smaug... [In reply to] Can't Post

and all of the other CGI we're going to see in DOS, I might be shocked if it doesn't win Best Visual Effects at the Oscars next year. If they nail it, which I hope and think they will do, it's going to be incredible. I can only imagine how many shots WETA has been rolling out for PJ, and will continue to do so over the next few months.

So excited!
