It was actually quite hard to get a feel for just how big Smaug, the big red, flame spewing, gold hoarding dragon was in last December’s The Desolation of Smaug. Sure he seemed monstrous in scale newt to both Thorin Oakenshield and Bilbo alike. But they’re both short-arses.
How big is Smaug by a modern scale. He’s bigger than me, I’ll freely admit. He’s bigger than the bus I took into work too, by my estimation. However a recent concept shot for Smaug in the IGN The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Behind The Scenes video below, suggests he’s maxes out at larger even than a commercial passenger jet. Which is pretty tasty!
