Dragon Smaug in 'The Hobbit' Described as Magnificent


October 06, 2008 09:23:36 GMT


As time comes nearer and nearer to the production of "The Hobbit", Guillermo Del Toro let out more interesting tidbits about the J.R.R. Tolkien's novel adaptation. Sharing his idea with Coming Soon during the conversation with New Yorker staff writer Daniel Zalewski, the filmmaker spoke out of his excitement on tackling one of the creatures in the flick saying, "All my life I've been fascinated by dragons. I was born under the Chinese sign of The Dragon."

"It's such a powerful symbol, and in the context of 'The Hobbit' it is used to cast its shadow through the entire narrative," he further explained. "Essentially, Smaug represents so many things: greed, pride...he's 'the Magnificent,' after all. The way his shadow is cast in the narrative you cannot then show it and have it be one thing, he has to be the embodiment of all those things. He's one of the few dragons that will have enormous scenes with lines. He has some of the most beautiful dialogues in those scenes!"
