Flights to Middle-earth are going to be a lot more entertaining thanks to "The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made" from Air New Zealand. "Lord of the Rings" star Elijah Wood and director Peter Jackson are among those who make appearances in the airline's rollicking new offering.
The video comes ahead of the December release of "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies," the final film in the Hobbit trilogy.
Characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy world make appearances throughout, with dwarves, orcs and elves all either teaching or learning about safe flying.
Fastening seat belts, securing oxygen masks and finding the nearest exit hasn't been this fun since 2012, when Air New Zealand went viral with another instructional video called "An Unexpected Briefing."
According to a media release, the new video was shot over six days across New Zealand. Wood, who stars in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy as Frodo Baggins, is joined by Dean O'Gorman (Fili the Dwarf) and Sylvester McCoy (Radagast), among others.
"Thank you for embarking on your journey with Air New Zealand," Wood says at the end. "May your path always be guided by the light of the stars. And may the future bestow upon you all the happiness and adventure our Middle-earth has to offer."
And then he slips a golden ring onto his finger and poof, he's gone.
"The Battle of the Five Armies" is due in theaters Dec. 17.
