Serkis implies Smaug design still in-progress

January 16, 2012 at 10:52 pm by Demosthenes  - 

Speaking with MTV at the Golden Globes the other night, Andy Serkis played typically coy about the appearance of Smaug in the forthcoming films. “I can’t give any secrets away, none of those trade secrets,” Serkis said. “I can’t say that because actually it’s still under wraps.” However, he did seem to imply that they’re still refining how it will look in the films. Ta to Irfon for the heads-up.

    Not a surprise at all, since they didn’t finish designing Gollum until *after* FOTR was released.

  4. “Under wraps” doesn’t necessary mean “still in progress”. But obviously, with the movie still almost a year away, visual effects and design are not completed yet. Looking forward to it, like a 10-year old is looking forward to christmas in Candyland.

    Similar to in the making of the Lotr films, I’m sure that the design and animation of Smaug has been in production from the beginning of The Hobbit’s production and will be finessed right up until release. Will we even see Smaug in part 1 of The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey? Or will give us a glimpse and cliff hanger at the end to be revealed in full in part 2: There and Back again?

    I can not wait to see Smaug. I expect he will look like the paintings by John Howe, but we shall see in due time.

    While the first film is almost a year away, we won’t even see Smaug in all his glory until a year after that, when the second film opens.  At best this December we might get some shadowy flashbacks as the dwarves tell their tale, and perhaps a distant glimpse as they approach the Lonely Mountain at the end.
