Thranduil's Halls

Thranduil's Halls Can't Post

In TTT Gimli mentions that dwarves originally helped make Thranduil's halls. Do you think we will see any dwarvish influences in this location for the movie? I imagine that the halls would have been made a long time ago (I know very little of the history). The elves would probably have 'styled' it completely in their manner. Any chance of some sparkling gems in the walls? Based off the trailer, the only similarity I can see to anything remotely dwarvish is the presence of narrow bridges spanning cavernous drops without railings (but maybe this is a common feature in underground halls Laugh). Just a fun thought.

In Unfinished Tales [In reply to] Can't Post

it is said that Thranduil based his halls on Menegroth, however, they were nowhere near as good as they didn't have the help of the dwarves in their making.

Thank you [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for directing me to that reference! I went and read it and it completely contradicts my speculation Blush. It must have been a slight slip of consistency with Gimli then.

No problem [In reply to] Can't Post

I actually only read that passage for the first time earlier in the morning so that was a coincidence.
