New THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG "Beorn's House" Featurette

This latest featurette focuses on a fan-favorite character who's been largely absent from the movie's marketing thus far, Beorn the skin-changer. There's no new footage of the man himself, but we do hear from actor Mikael Persbrandt and the rest of the cast on what it was like shooting on the giant set.

I know look at my physique! SMH that is why the critics were rough on the movie because of the leading man!

So we've turned the trolls into an action scene, the barrels into an action scene, goin to Beorn's house into an action scene, we've completely made up action scenes for Gandalf and the elves in Mirkwood/Dol Guldur...I think I understand why the Tolkiens hate these movies

@ StarkAnthony

Of course they did this, it is Hollywood. Do you really think the masses want to watch non action scenes? Heck they have added so much new stuff to these movies just to justify three chapters.

It's kind of weird seeing Ian Mckellen walking around eye level with the dwarf actors bts, so used to him towering a good few feet above everyone.

Looking forward to this one!

Complete agreement with StarkAnthony and monkeyballs here.

And do we seriously have videos about Beorn's hall now and not a single official look at his (ridiculous looking) human form?

But yeah, the house looks good at least! :)
