He will have 2 true legs [In reply to] Can't Post

From AUJ EE I no longer have doubts. He has 2 normal back legs and very arm like wings with claws. I'm pretty sure that the smoke dragon is just the one from the map. This isn't even to mention that 4 legs and big ole back wings doesn't work or appear in the natural world and Smaug's mo cap works much better with two arm wings that BC can move himself. No doubt, 2 legs is the winner.

Lots of things work in the natural world. We really have only seen 0.000000000000000000000001 percent [In reply to] Can't Post

of the natural anything, isolated as we are on this tiny dust and water molecule mote in the vastness of space in the greater vastness of a many dimensional multiverse. Anyway, vertebrae might not have more than four limbs, but plenty of arthropods do. And a dragon with four legs and wings is much better able to defend itself against.... lithotransforming stone giants and the like. I think he will have two wings as well, but I don't like the choice.

Wouldn't it be interesting if Smaug has been turned into a huge bug?? lol The real problem is that you would need huge muscle masses for Smaug's wings to get him anywhere! My theory is that they really changed it because of BC's motion capture performance.

That actually makes perfect sense. [In reply to] Can't Post

Giving the dragon four limbs, two of which have wings attached, would allow Benedict to more comprehensively play the character. It's hard to embody a character's movements when you are playing something that has two more appendages than you do!

From the pictures and quite footage we have seen of BC's performance it looks like he is using his ares to slide himself around just like we have seen in the trailer.

Love that image! [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think that's what Smaug will really look like though. In fact, in most of the cast interviews I've read, even the actors think the finished Smaug will look different from anything we've seen as of yet.

You'll have to settle for some blow-up .jpeg artifacts, but I hope this is large enough for ya'.
