Air New Zealand strikes again with The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made

Air New Zealand‘s most recent safety video is more epic and star studded than ever

The third Hobbit themed safety video precedes the final film: The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies due out in 2015. A star filled five minutes (minus Ian McKellen)

“As the official airline of Middle-earth, Air New Zealand has gone all out to celebrate the third and final film in The Hobbit Trilogy – The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Starring Elijah Wood and Sir Peter Jackson; we’re thrilled to unveil The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made.

Special cameos by Sylvester McCoy, Dean O’Gorman and Weta Workshop co-founder Sir Richard Taylor. Directed by Taika Waititi. Enjoy!”

“This latest offering combines members of our cast and our locations with Air New Zealand’s unique personality.” says Jackson. “I had a lot of fun on the set with Taika and the team and look forward to seeing the video on board.”

You might recognise some of the Hobbit enthusiasts from the previous videos but new and elaborate effects have brought the trilogy to a brilliant close, with the final word coming from Elijah Wood.
