Step Into the Light by Ghostwalker2061 Step Into the Light by Ghostwalker2061
Why, yes, this is based off of this image....


Smaug: Well, thief!  Where are you?  Come now, don't be shy.  Step into the light!

I figured that my version of Rankin-Bass's Smaug, drawn by Studio Gibli, would sound even more awesome with that line coming from those jaws.

Yes, of course, he has hair on his head.  Hush.

And I wanted Bilbo to have this ghostly look to represent the invisibility.  It's my thing.

And of course Smaug has to have his iconic headlight eyes.  I mean, it's just not right without him having those.  His eyes are like huge spotlights.  They could blind an airplane!

Oh, geez!  Seriously? They used THAT line in the movie?  Gosh...couldn't they have just used the original line from the book?

The "step into the light" line?

Yeah.  They did.  I liked it.  It was a variant on how Smaug was goding Bilbo to come out so he could see him and of course kill him.

Yes, that one.

True, that is one of Smaug's best lines in both the book and the 1976 animated movie.

Smaug never said that in the 1977 animated movie, nor in the book.  

"step into the light"

Is only spoken in Jackson's film and no other.

Oh, my mistake. 

Wait, actually Smaug DID say that line in the Hobbit game.

Yes, I will give you that, he did say it in the hobbit game.  I kinda feel some of the dialog that Smaug uses in the movie is from that.  But not all of it.

Well, from the lines that I've heard Smaug say in the movie trailer it sounded similar to the game, so...it maybe where the script writer got his inspiration from.

But, as I said before, I haven't seen the movie yet but I will next week on Monday.
