The Hobbit Environment The Green Dragon Inn
- Additional information
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole. It was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort. Scattered among the grassy hills of Hobbiton like a purse full of lost coins, the bright round doors of many dozen hobbit-holes shine in bright, summery hues, each home to a hobbit or family of the little people.
Down the hill and across the water lies the favourite watering hole of every Hobbiton inhabitant, the Green Dragon, an establishment of impeccable repute where cool ale and warm conversation wash away a day’s tests and toils. Any night of the week a chorus of laughter and cheer rises with wood smoke from around the Dragon’s glowing hearths, rosy-cheeked, full-bellied patrons singing a lazily sinking sun to sleep. This gorgeous little environment is an exacting miniature replica of the movie set that can be visited at Hobbiton in Matamata, New Zealand. It is an Open Edition piece.
Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each piece is painted by hand and slight variations will occur.
Weta Workshop’s high-quality Middle-earth collectibles are made by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies. It takes 4-5 hours to design, sculpt, model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new piece. Whether it be a prop replica, beautiful environment or iconic character, we treat our collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
