Dwarves, Orcs and Elves take flight once again as Air New Zealand unveils The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made ahead of the December release of the final film in The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
Starring in The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made are members of the cast from all three films in the Trilogy – Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins), Dean O’Gorman (Fili the Dwarf) and Sylvester McCoy (Radagast). The safety video was shot over six days across a number of New Zealand’s Middle-earth locations, including Hobbiton and Central Otago, both of which appear in The Hobbit Trilogy.
The director of all of the films, Sir Peter Jackson says, “Air New Zealand has created yet another fantastic video to celebrate The Hobbit films. This latest offering combines members of our cast and our locations with Air New Zealand’s unique personality. I had a lot of fun on the set with Taika and the team and look forward to seeing the video on board.”
The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made follows the airline’s first safety video to be inspired by The Hobbit films – An Unexpected Briefing (2012) – which attracted more than 12 million global online views and generated huge media and social media coverage.
Air New Zealand has produced a series of safety video’s over the years which we have absolutely loved. Their pride and enthusiasm for their own country, plus a reflection of their own good sense of humour is obvious, and we can’t help but pay attention, and then re-watch a safety video we’ve all seen millions of times before. Air NZ safety video show reel includes:
“The Bear Essentials of Safety” featuring adventurer Bear Grylls
“Safety Old School Style” with Betty White
“Safety in Paradise” with Victoria Secret Models
“Fit to Fly” starring fitness legend Richard Simmons
Collectively the airline’s safety videos have clocked up more than 30 million hits online.
In order to have them all in one place, we better include…
