Hi all -

I didn't notice this mentioned anywhere, so -

The opening of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey features some kites, dragon kites of course, eventually going up in flames.

Red paper dragon kite...
...is obviously an allusion to the Russian animation film "Sokrovischa pod goroy" ("Treasures under the mountains") which was started in USSR in 1991; however, because of budget reasons, only the prologue sequence was finished, and the project was canceled in 1993.

The song in the Russian animated film sings about "what can a brave little paper dragon kite do against a real one?"

first the kite is featured at 2:25:
