HOBBIT THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES CHRONICLES

Summary

A stunning look at the creative process behind The Hobbit: There and Back Again—the third and final installment of one of the world’s biggest motion picture franchises from Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson

In this concluding chapter of Peter Jackson’s cinematic rendering of J.R.R. Tolkien’s popular masterpiece, The Hobbit, Bilbo, Gandalf the Grey, and Thorin’s Company of Dwarves enter the Lonely Mountain of Erebor, lair of the ferocious fire-breathing Dragon Smaug, to reclaim the dwarves’ stolen gold; battle against Azog, an Orc chief and his hoard of orcs; and come face to face with a terrifying Necromancer.

Working closely with the film’s production staff, the award-winning team at WETA brings together more than 240 pages of spectacular four-color visuals, including hundreds of images of concept artwork, photographs, development paintings, and more created by the artists and designers working behind the scenes. Movie photography and finished imagery accompany the sketches and drawings, showing how the artists’ vision was realized from design to final product.

Chock full of insider stories, details, and insights, The Hobbit: There and Back Again Chronicles: Art & Design also includes a special bonus feature—a three-page fold-out sure to delight fans and become a treasured collectible.
