Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

Sorry for the double post, but some An Unexpected Journey toys have apparently hit shelves. Included in the set are Legolas and Tauriel, who were likely going to appear in AUJ until the decision to turn the duology into a trilogy. Anyway, TORn took some snapshots which give us our first glimpse of Evangeline Lilly's Tauriel:


Not a huge deal, but I figured people might be curious to see her, given her status as character invented for the movies.

Also interesting to note that Legalos and Tauriel are packaged together.

And invented twice, since, if I remember right, she was initially called Itaril and played by Saoirse Ronan.

Yeah, I was wondering what the significance of that was.

Possibly they're both in the scouting party that capture the dwarves in Mirkwood? I mean that's the logical place for Legolas to show up, no?

I note she's dark haired, so being his sibling or other relation seems unlikely. Actually, what is the significance of elven hair colour? I gather it has something to do with which first age group from which they are descended? Does that mean everyone in the woodland realm should be blonde, or just the royalty/nobility?

...perhaps it's just as simple as they're the only pretty people in the whole trilogy.

As far as I know, Itaril was nothing more than an internet rumor.

Oh maybe the name "Itaril" was a rumor, but Ronan was in talks to play a role in the movie.

Yeah, I saw that poster a few days. Everyone seems to be raving about it on Facebook but I'm not entirely sure why. It's a nice poster but nothing special.

Bilbo looks a bit like Pippin in that poster. Also, it's worth noting that the poster doesn't promote any of the humor, charm or whimsy we'll see in the film. It's clear that its tone (moody sky, serious expression, the position of Sting) is meant to appeal to LOTR film fans - a point reinforced by the tagline across Bilbo's head.

Are you absolutely sure there will be humour, charm or whimsy? It would be a big departure for Peter Jackson.

Am I absolutely sure? Perhaps not. But the trailers give me reason to believe. Absolutely.

Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

First look at the Goblin King

It's just the action figure, but it gives us a good idea what he will look like in the movie.

Cool, that does look like the thing that falls on the Dwarves in the second trailer right at the end though!
