Parting Shot: The Trippy 1960s ‘The Hobbit’ Animatic [Video]

If you got tingly watching the trailer for Peter Jackson’s first of two live action films based on J.R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, just wait until you get a load of Gene Dietch’s recently uncovered animatic from ’66 featuring the artwork of Adolf Born. At around 12 minutes long, it’s certainly not as beefy as the 1977 Rankin/Bass animated Hobbit feature, but it packs a psychedelic punch worthy of Led Zeppelin’s references. Behold the magic after the jump.
