This is something i kept asking myself while watching the film.

Exactly how big would you say Smaug is(in terms of feet) in the films?

I would guess from 150-200 feet long with the tail.

Yeah. Sounds right to me. Maybe as high as 300.

@fallschirmjager: wait 300 feet is 900 meters thats about 2.75 Eiffel towers that is way to much I think about 300 meters maybe (100 feet)

He was pretty big dude. Remember how big the entrance to Erebor was? Smaug was practically that tall. And he's much longer than he is tall

@fallschirmjager: he was big but you know the Eiffeltower is tall but him being almost three times that lenght no no that doesn't seem right

In length, I think its possible. His tail is probably the entire length of the rest of his body.

@attatje: A meter is roughly 3 feet. So 300 feet is about 100 meters.

The Eiffel tower is 324 meters tall so Smaug should be about a third of the height of the tower.

I'd say about 200 as a guess.

@attatje: It's all good. Just a math mistake. I do them all the time.
