Did Peter Jackson give us a clue about Smaug?
We’re all eagerly awaiting The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and just what exactly that magnificent dragon will be like on the big screen has long been a question on our minds. Of course, we saw quite a lot of Smaug in the Desolation trailer – but it seems like Peter Jackson and his team may have given us a crafty hint about the mighty worm way back at the very beginning of the first Hobbit movie…
Take a look at this:
That’s the opening WB logo which can be see on the DVD/Blu-ray of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. See what is in the clouds just to the left of the WB shield? That’s a dragon, right?
Here’s the standard WB opening to the right, together side by side with this Hobbit one, where we’ve outlined the potential Smaug in red. Staffer Arandir thinks there may be a thrush to the right of the shield, too…
What do you think? Are we just seeing things in the clouds? Or was there a sly suggestion of what was to come, hidden in that opening moment? Maybe you spotted this months ago – or maybe you see something else we haven’t seen!
Let us know your thoughts! And in case you’re still pondering, here’s another look:
