Smokin’ Smaug

Could this be Smaug in action?

angeluriel has posted this pic describing it as ” Smoke rising over the green screen in Wellington. My guess is that Laketown is currently being attacked by a Benedict Cumberbatch voiced dragon.”  

Is it Smaug?

What do you think?

  1. I think that even the *possibility* of this being the case is exciting!

  2. I saw it today as well… Towards the end of the day there was a whole heap of smoke pouring out from the set. There’s also a lot more screens up around it, making it VERY difficult to see anything clearly! Not sure what’s going on, but it’s all very exciting.

    We heard a small unverified rumour a few weeks ago that “Smaug was going to attack soon”, but I didn’t pay much attention to it; the source was unverified. It looks like the source just got verified, huh?

  3. ooooh! That is such an awesomely-intriging pic! Did you have to go into a helicopter to shoot it?
