PETER JACKSON RELEASES SIX NEW ‘HOBBIT’ IMAGES, PROMISES NEW TRAILER WEDNESDAY

6

Peter Jackson recently released a video promising that a new, epic trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey would hit the Interwebs on Wednesday, September 20th. To tide us over til then, USA Today released six new photos from the production, including our first really good look at the mysterious Radagast the Brown, a third wizard (along with Gandalf and Saruman) who is only briefly mentioned in The Hobbit book, but who writer Phillipa Boyens thinks will become a fan-favorite:

[quote]“He’s not at all like Gandalf,” Boyens says. “There’s a power and danger and sharpness and wits and cunning even about Gandalf that you sense immediately, whereas Radagast is much quieter and gentler. You could mistakenly think he’s not even a wizard or that he might not have any powers of his own, and then you discover that he does.”[/quote]

We’ll bring you that new Hobbit trailer as soon as it becomes available. Here are the new pics:

Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.

    Is Bilbo growing weed in his house? What’s that hanging from the ceiling?

    • @eda1ba2f5b4bd4549895d35889ad2b2b:disqus Of course he is, haven’t you ever heard of the “Halfling’s Leaf?” What do you think Gandalf is always getting stoned on? Pot accounts for 75% of the Shire’s annual income. haha

    “Radagast is much quieter and gentler. You could mistakenly think he’s not even a wizard or that he might not have any powers of his own, and then you discover that he does.”
    I wonder if his voice sounds like Yoda, too. “Mudhole? Slimy? My home this is!”

    • Radagast the Brown I am, smoke the halfling’s leaf, I will!
