From New Line Cinema, Peter Jackson and Warner Bros. comes J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, brought to the big screen in an epic trilogy. Weta Workshop was thrilled to return to Middle-earth once again, contributing design, specialty props and specialty costumes to all three films.

Having eluded their Goblin captors and been led to daylight by the wizard Gandalf, the Company of Thorin now find themselves perched like birds amid the boughs of dry pine trees clinging to the jagged mountain slopes. 

Pursued relentlessly by the pale Orc chieftain Azog, the Dwarves, Gandalf, and Bilbo Baggins are surrounded by vicious, snapping Wargs who hurl themselves at the splintering trees. Amid shattering wood and the pop and twist of groaning roots the trees are toppled, one by one, forcing the Company to leap from one precarious perch to another, finally coming to dangle beyond the yawning cliff over a hungry and empty sky.

Thinking quickly, Gandalf ignites pine cones which the Dwarves send hurtling down upon their foes like fiery missiles. But this desperate act is a mere tactic of delay, for without help, whether by tooth, fall or flame, they know death awaits them all in the leering pale Orc's grin. He has them!

Yet even in the face of this certain doom, hope swoops unlooked-for from above in the form of the Great Eagles and their lord, who, with wings beating flames in the faces of their enemies and talons flashing, send Orc and Warg alike plunging into the abyss and sweep Bilbo and his companions to safety.

There are people of extraordinary talent operating in today's world that have similar skills as the great masters of yesteryear. It just happens to be that the canvas that they paint on is the darkened screen of the cinemas of the world.

Richard Taylor - CEO & Co-founder, Weta Workshop

The scene from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has been captured by Weta Workshop concept designer Nick Keller. He was part of the core team of Weta designers who worked on the movie.

The external dimensions of the print are 23.2in x 11.7in (590mm x 297mm) and the printed area is 20.9in x 8.9in (530mm x 235mm). A lovely cinematic format. Exactly the same size as the previously released prints.

It's printed on good quality 170 gsm satin paper and ships rolled up in a VERY sturdy poster tube. It will arrive in pristine condition, ready to be framed and hung, pride of place, in your home.
