Brickfilms Wiki

The Aggravation of Smaug is a 2014 Hobbit brickfilm created by Kevin Ulrich for The LEGO Group. It is about Bilbo Baggins and a group of dwarves attempting to retrieve treasure which they discover is being guarded by a dragon, Smaug, who proceeds to chase Bilbo across the land.[1] It was considered by Ulrich to be Brotherhood Workshop's most ambitious and best brickfilm up to the point of its creation.[2]
