It’s the Mambo No. 5!!!


A little bit of Charming in my life


A little bit of Jefferson by my side


A little bit of Phillip is all I need


A little bit of Graham is what I see


A little bit of August in the sun


A little bit of Killian all night long


A little bit of Robin here I am


A little bit of you makes me your woman!

Big-atures: Rivendell

"One of the wonderful treats that came as a by-product to the building of Rivendell was that - while we were building it - Alan Lee was so… attached to this miniature that he’d come down regularly and work on it - with us.” - Richard Taylor


States of Middle-Earth

Everywhere else was getting one so I thought it was necessary 


Hugo Weaving:

"The armour I wore in The Lord of the Rings looked fantastic, but it was certainly heavier and a slightly different style. This armour, on The Hobbit, is much lighter to wear and it looks terrific as well. I think Matt Appleton has done an incredible job with all of it.

Matt Appleton (Weta Workshop Costume Supervisor):

"I think Kate Venables should take a bow for her fantastic job on the leatherwork. As an armour technician in our team at Weta Workshop she poured her heart and soul into that armour and it showed in the final result. It was a beautiful suit.

Hugo Weaving was a pleasure to work with—so easy-going and positive. We dressed him up in a rich brown suit of armour that was an extrapolation on the suit he wore for The Lord of the Rings, though more comfortable to wear this time around and richer in its level of detail and finish.

Richard Taylor (Weta Workshop Design and Special Effects Supervisor):

"Coming back for The Hobbit Peter wanted to see some of the protectors of this Elven enclave. The chief influence for this new armour was golden High Elf armour worn by the soldiers we saw Elrond leading in battle upon the Gorgoroth plain in The Fellowship of the Ring.

Matt Appleton:

"We had created tassettes that hung all the way down the front, something that was done because we thought they were only going to be standing around looking imposing, but then it turned out they needed to be on horses. Fortunately we solved that one. Somewhere there is a video of me riding a fake horse wearing those tassettes—not just the tassettes, I should add.

"But, you know, I just wish I could move into one of these Hobbit holes. I mean, this would be an absolutely idyllic place to live, it really would. This is the sort of place that I would very happily retire to."
