Exclusive Inside Look at Beorn’s House with Hobbit Set Designer, Dan Hennah

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to chat with Dan Hennah while visiting Los Angeles for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug world premiere. He’s not only worked on The Hobbit films, but The Lord of the Rings trilogy as well, making him a legend in my mind.

Even after the interview was finished, Dan and I stood around Beorn’s house within The Book of New Zealand discussing the detail put into the design sets around us. He was a pleasure to talk with and it was a joy to see how excited Dan was to point out the small details he and his crew added to the sets.

In this exclusive interview, Dan tells us which set was his favorite to design and which was the most challenging. Plus, he opens up about designing to incorporate Beorn’s tall frame.
