were there any reshoots done to AUJ? Can't Post

I had read that before the split into three movies, originally Thorin and Azog did not fight after the escape from the Misty Mountains. It was originally just random goblins from the Misty Mountains who wanted revenge for the death of the Great Goblin, like in the book. The CG stuff with Azog could have easily been done in post, but Thorin clearly calls him "Azog" in the scene and goes to face him like this is no ordinary goblin leader.

The ending too feels like that was always supposed to be the ending...thinking Thorin is dead, Thorin accepting Bilbo, getting the first glimpse of the mountain, etc. And yet before the split the first movie was going to end with Bilbo and the dwarves escaping in the barrels and getting their first glimpse of the mountain as they approached Lake Town.

The thing is I thought all the pickups/reshoots were being done this summer, so did they do others that I just didn't hear about? I didn't hear anything about them going back after the three film split before this summer.
