A new featurette has been released for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug which focuses on Beorn, played by Mikael Persbrandt, who we haven’t seen much of before. Check it out below.
Beorn is a “skinchanger” and Ian McKellan describes him as “A man who is sometimes a bear, and a bear who is sometimes a man.” Due to this, Beorn needs to larger home and the featurette focuses around this. It looks pretty beautiful, awesome and stunning!!!
