1 & 2. I've always liked Bard, even if Tolkien does bring him out of nowhere. This is one place where Jackson has a chance to give a character a better introduction than Tolkien did. One might expect, though, that he might be wearing some leggings since Smaug's attack on Lake-town occurs pretty late in the year (late-October or early-November).

3. I never had too much trouble with the Rankin/Bass interpretation of Smaug other than his being a bit large in the tummy. I don't recall if his coloration in the image above accurately represents how he was colored in the animated film, though the shaft of the Black Arrow shouldn't be visible.

4. Bard's arrow is, of course, just as much of a deux ex machina as is Bard himself. Again, Jackson has the opportunity to add a bit of foreshadowing to his film adaptation, so that the Black Arrow doesn't feel like a cheat.

5. I'm still hoping that weaver or some other poster will turn out to have a copy of The Hobbit that includes the illustrations from the animated film; I would love to see the illustrations that cover the bits of the book that were ommited from the animated adaptation (especially Beorn, the Wood-elves' forest feast, and the sequences involving the Arkenstone).
