As The Hobbit trilogy kicked off with An Unexpected Journey, the franchise partnered with Air New Zealand for a safety video in 2012. The airline then debuted a Smaug airplane last year for The Desolation of Smaug. As the trilogy comes to a close this year with The Battle of The Five Armies, director Peter Jackson and star Elijah Wood have teamed up for "The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made".

Clocking in at just over four and a half minutes, this safety video also features cameos from Dean O'Gorman (Fili), Sylvester McCoy (Radagast the Brown) and Weta Workshop co-founder Sir Richard Taylor.

Here's what Peter Jackson had to say about this epic video, which was directed by New Zealand native filmmaker Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows).

"Air New Zealand has created yet another fantastic video to celebrate The Hobbit films. I had a lot of fun on the set with Taika and the team and look forward to seeing the video on board."

Take a look at the video below before The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies closes out this epic trilogy on December 17.
