How much safer would you feel, future traveler, if Gandalf was flying your plane? That’s one of the many questions raised from this odd and wonderfully geeky new safety video from Air New Zealand.

The airline decided to have a little fun with its standard pre-flight safety instructions by making this video, which features Hobbits, Elves, Wizards and even ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ director Peter Jackson fastening their seat belts and placing their tray tables in the fully upright position.

So how long do you think it’ll be until we get R2-D2 serving us rum and Cokes on Air Disney flights?
