The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug has released a new featurette online, welcoming viewers into the house of the “skinchanger” Beorn.
Described rather nicely by Ian McKellen as “a man who is sometimes a bear, or a bear who is sometimes a man,” Beorn offers the company of dwarves a place of refuge during their perilous journey.
However, in order to accommodate a bear / man hybrid, Beorn’s house is a little on the large side, posing Peter Jackson and company something of a challenge during filming…
Take a look at the new featurette, below…
Meanwhile, the film has also released a brand new banner, focusing on new additions Tauriel, Legolas and Bard, alongside a newly battle-hardened Bilbo.
Directed by Jackson and co-starring Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage and Lee Pace, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug will open in the UK on 13 December 2013.
