Fun ‘The Hobbit’/’Sherlock’ Cartoon Focusing On Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman

smauglock the hobbit sherlock Fun ‘The Hobbit’/Sherlock’ Cartoon Focusing On Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman

Ahou has put together this great crossover cartoon centering on Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s characters from ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘Sherlock.’ If you weren’t already aware, Cumberbatch is playing both Smaug the Dragon and The Necromancer in ‘The Hobbit’ film series. Smaug, one of the last remaining dragons in Middle-earth, guards the treasure in Erebor. Cumberbatch will portray Smaug and The Necromancer through motion capture, similar to Andy Serkis with Gollum. Smaug has a very brief appearance in ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ during the opening prologue and the ending, but only portions of him can be seen, not his full body. I’m looking forward to seeing him unleashed in ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!’

Based on the classic mystery stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the Golden Globe-nominated BBC series stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the brilliant, socially inept detective and Martin Freeman as his long-suffering roommate and co-sleuth. Both Cumberbatch and Freeman will be seen in series 3 of ‘Sherlock’ later this year. The newly released teaser trailer can be viewed below.
