Balancing adult/child appeal in films 2/3 Can't Post

I've been thinking about this. There is some pretty grim stuff coming up when it comes to Thorin/Bilbo, Thorin/Fili/Kili, etc. Will PJ manage to inject enough humour/pleasant things into the next two films to make them suitable for children? Thorin in the film, with Bilbo and Gandalf, is a favourite character with many – it would be horrible if he were made completely unlikeable, or if he were isolated from the rest of the company, etc. He has had enough bad stuff happen to him already in his life.

I also seem to remember from the book that Beorn's race was decimated by the Orcs. I hope we are not going to see flashbacks of loads of bears being killed. Likewise I do not wish to see Eagles killed in BoFA (and I am no child!).
