The Hobbit plane!

The Hobbit

One of the most eagerly awaited films of the year, Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An  Unexpected Journey, opens in the UK on December 13th. To promote the movie, Air New Zealand has decorated one of their 777 aircraft with an image from the movie and the plane landed in the UK on Sunday, ready to take the cast of the film to the global premiere in New Zealand.


The links between Air New Zealand and The Hobbit don’t stop there – Air New Zealand’s new inflight safety video is Hobbit-themed too:

Sir Peter Jackson, the director of The Hobbit trilogy, commented, “It’s wonderful to see such a stunning image to celebrate The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on one of Air New Zealand’s largest international aircraft.  It’s a unique representation of the innovation and creativity of New Zealanders and a great opportunity to show off the incomparably beautiful landscape of this country.”
