I have many hopes for the DoS EE...

...and additional scenes of Bilbo wandering through Thranduil's halls is one of them. Bilbo should have been front and center while the dwarves were imprisoned and yet he took a back seat to talks about starlight and Legolas being fond of Tauriel. We lost track of Bilbo for extended periods of time during this portion of the movie and that was unfortunate.

I really hope we get to see Bilbo wandering around Thranduil's halls, amazed by the woodland elves and King Thranduil as he observes the Feast of Starlight and pilfers food and wine. I want to actually see him looking for a way out and devising his master plan. That's where Martin Freeman really shines--body language and subtle gestures. One look or hand movement conveys so much emotion. (The AUJ EE scenes of him exploring Rivendell are a great example. I hope they give us the equivalent in the DoS EE.)

And I'd love it if they showed him eavesdropping on the Thorin and Thranduil encounter. I've always wondered what Bilbo would make of that conversation! Wink

Rowan Greene, you make some good,thoughtful points. Your version of Thranduil's past history is so sad and tragic, befitting the persona of the movie Thranduil. That's the thing, he and his back story are so mysterious we can all have our own take on it. I agree that Bilbo should be the catylist. Still I would like to see more of Bilbo in the Elven halls observing. Maybe at the starlight feast that they alluded to in DOS, hopefully in the EE. I can not wait to see what they do with Thranduil's character in TABA. I fervently hope it will not disappoint.
On an aside, Thankyou, so much, for starting this awesome thread! I love how this is on the fifth page of TH forum and still going strong. Lots of posting still happening here. Yay!Laugh
