Beorn's height confirmed! Can't Post

From Jude Fisher's Visual Companion, which I just received:




Quote


Beorn, heavily muscled and nearly eight feet tall, with a great beard and a mass of dark hair, is an imposing figure. Closer to a giant than a mere man, he is large enough to cast fear into Goblins and Orcs... He lives in an oak-wood to the East of the Great River, in a large wooden house which lies behind a high thorn-hedge...There he keeps cattle and horses that are nearly as big as he is, as well as dogs, sheep and chickens. He also keeps hives of bees... The drones are the size of small birds, with bands of gold on their furry black bodies that shine like fiery gold.He is the last of his people, but says that once there were many like him and that they were the first to live in the mountains, before Orcs ever came down from the North. For though Beorn escaped their cruel torture, he will never forget, or forgive. A goblin's head is stuck on the gate outside his house, and a warg's skin is nailed to a tree, as warning to his enemies.






There are some pics of him in this guide and the Sibley movie guide which I also have. He looks interesting, different, but not bad.
It could definitely work in the film. The pictures of the house show large it is, but the pics of Beorn ín the books don't show him as that big.
I think it will only be in the film that you can really see his size and how he moves as well.

One thing, I think it is Beorn who speaks to the dwarves in this week's 3 minute sneak peek. At one point the dwarves are all lined up, and a very heavy voice speaks to them saying "Kill the dragon, take back your homeland". I think that is him, and not Gandalf which was suggested earlier. It isn't Gandalf's voice, but lower.

Another thing the Visual companion confirms is that there the Nine Nazgul are at Dol Guldur.

It also confirms Tauriel's backstory, about her parents having been murdered by orcs. And more on how incredibly badass she is supposed to be.
