Oh man, talk abt "PC", no *way* are they letting their precious Tauriel get drunk and pass out. Not a "positive role model" for tween-aged girls. She'll be as pure as driven snow, smart as a whip, and able to "kick orc butt" at the drop of a feather. I'm sure she'll get at least a hint of weepy romance as well.

Again, "Tauriel", a coming of age fantasy epic about an elf warrior, sounds like a splendid movie for Jackson & Co. to make, why didn't they make it? Because Tauriel will pale in comparison to Tolkien's characters, she's there to fill up a quota and help marketing, and to help Boyens feel comfy in Tolkien's world. With effort, sure, they could make a very original fantasy picture about a girl's coming of age, or a female warrior leading an army, I'm not sure high fantasy has done that on the screen yet. But I don't see where she comes into Tolkien's story at all.
