Speculations on the "Barrels Out of Bond" scene + McKellen's frustration. (Possible SPOILERS) Can't Post

Over the last months there have rumours a plenty that Tauriel, played by Evangeline Lilly, would play a part in the dwarves’ escape from the Elven realm in Mirkwood. Another thirteen months will have to pass until we find out whether these rumours have been based on reality or were merely invented out of thin air. Having said that, I find it interesting that Tauriel does not appear in the Lego set “79004 Barrell Escape” which features Bilbo, Oin, Gloin and two Elven characters named “Mirkwood Elf Chief” and “Mirkwood Elf Guard”.



If you click the second link, a little comic will pop up which includes the following lines:

“The Mirkwood Elves have locked the Dwarves in the Elvenking’s palace dungeon! With the help of his magic ring, Bilbo Baggins is invisible to the guards. So he steals their dungeon key to free the Dwarves!”
Tauriel appears in another Lego set called “79001 Escape from Mirkwood Spiders” which also features Legolas, Fili and Kili.


Does this mean Bilbo will be solely responsible for the dwarves’ escape, just like in the book?

In other news: Sir Ian McKellen's tears of frustration

--- The 73-year-old actor became distressed filming the Sir Peter Jackson-directed movie, and mistakenly told the crew he did not become an actor to pretend pictures on sticks were dwarves.
He said: ''I had a miserable day. In order to shoot the dwarves and a large Gandalf, we couldn't be in the same set.
''All I had for company was 13 photographs of the dwarves on top of stands with little lights - whoever's talking flashes up. Pretending you're with 13 other people when you're on your own, it stretches your technical ability to the absolute limits.

''And I cried, actually. I cried. Then I said out loud, 'This is not why I became an actor'. Unfortunately the microphone was on and the whole studio heard.''
However, he was pleased to find everything had been made pleasant for him on his next day of filming.
He said: ''The next day I went into my little tent and it had all been decorated beautifully. Remnants of Rivendell, carpets and cushions, fresh fruit and flowers, things that were hanging. It was lovely.''---


Ceterum censeo montem artis magicae atrae esse delendum.
