New Book to Come from Weta

If you enjoyed WETA’s first Chronicles book, you’re going love their new one! It’s entitled The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Chronicles, Creatures & Characters.

WETA AUJ Chronicles

This new book will have a foreword by Andy Serkis and it showcases all of our favorite beasts and heroes that appeared in the first installment from The Hobbit trilogy. Inside, you can find behind-the-scene photos, film stills, and quotes from the cast and crew. Creatures & Characters will be categorized by species, and will go character by character with stories on how each of them were brought to life.

If you pre-order from their website, you’ll be able to get your copy signed by Daniel Falconer and three (or maybe more) other artists who worked on the film.

WETA Hobbit Chronicles RewardNot only that, but all the pre-orders will come with a reward that’s worth US$10, US15 or US$50! You can either receive $US10 off a T-shirt of Thorin’s map, US$15 off of a Riddles in the Dark art print, or $US50 off a Balin the Dwarf statue. You’ll receive the code by email when your copy of the book has been shipped.

Within the rewards, there are three Golden Tickets, and the lucky winners will be given one of three amazing prizes: Sterling Silver Orchist PendantRadagast the Brown’s Staff, and Dwalin’s Axes (all worth well over US$100 each)! Be sure to read their page to find out more.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Chronicles, Creatures & Characters gets shipped out in April, so hurry up and pre-order a copy; I know I can’t wait to get my hands on one!

  1. That’s a nice looking book! Now I face a dilemma. Purchase texts for a class that will be over in a couple of months… or purchase this book and a couple other goodies that will be cherished for a lifetime. Hmmm….
