LOL you know I stared at the picture for almost a minute before I noticed it was different? Just goes to show all my attention went to Thranduil anyway, I didn't even notice the two Elves in the background Tongue Although Leggy isn't easily dismissed Heart

An interview, preferably in vid format, where the two are talking about their roles and working with each other, just cos. All the BTS of them together seemed so FUN.Smile


Definitely.Smile It seemed like they really had fun together BTS. It would be nice to bring that fun to an interview where they could be in the same room for once instead of having to only talk about each other in separate interviews.

Good ones!Cool

That BTS gif reminds me of this BTS pic I saw on Twitter sometime before DOS had even come out on DVD and it looked like it was a pic from when OB was rehearsing his one-on-one fight with Bolg in Laketown. Of course I can't find it anymore to save my life, but apparently, OB had lost his balance and fallen right smack on top of the guy who was playing Bolg and they couldn't get up, LOL!Laugh The person who had posted it was saying that they wished they could be the orc just for the sake of being that close to Leggy.Tongue

I sure wish that pic would resurface somewhere. It seems to have disappeared into oblivion!

I wonder if the low res might be playing tricks on our eyes, otherwise that's a really odd way for him to be holding his hand if there's nothing in it.

     Definitely because of the Ring of Power (Movie SPOILER) [In reply to]  


Quote
It's something that I need to figure out too. Though I can't say for sure, I thought I read something that points to Galadriel being a Ring of Power bearer, and thus a match for the particular Minions (a gaggle of Nazgul I believe) who was occupying Dol Guldor for Sauron .

The members of The White Council had to be the ones to clean out Dol Goldur because of the power of the enemies who lived there. As good of a warrior as Thranduil and his people were, they were no match for the Necromance and the Nazgul.

Along with the members of the White Council being very powerful to begin with, three of them bore Rings of Power: By the time of The Hobbit Galadriel bore Nenya the ring of water, Elrond bore Vilya the ring of air, and Gandalf bore Narya, the ring of fire. (sorry about that last link. I couldn't help it.Wink)

Although all elves apparently have some sort of inherent "special" abilities, my understanding is that the three elven Rings of Power amplified the abilities of the wearer along with giving them power to heal and preserve things. While Sauron had the One Ring, the elven ring bearers were unable to use their rings lest Sauron find them and corrupt them like he did with the 9 kings of Men who became the Nazgul. However, after The One was lost after the LA, the elven and one wizard ring bearers were able to use their rings openly again. hence the reason Rivendell and Lothlorien were able to remain unblemished for so long. Gandalf's ring also gave him the ability to inspire hope and courage, which we know he did frequently.Smile IMO, all of this power amplification by the Rings of Power is the reason why Thranduil couldn't clean out Dol Guldur even though it was in his backyard, but the White Council could.

[SPOILER ALERT]











In addition to the powers I mentioned above, elven rings could be turned invisible so that no one except the other ring bearers knew to whom the rings belonged. This is why you don't see any of the rings on Elrond's, Galadriel's or Gandalf's fingers during the majority of the movies except for when the three of them leave for the Grey Havens in ROTK and when Galadriel showed Nenya to Frodo in FOTR. However, as TORn staffers Cliff and Justin noticed during the TORn Tuesday main BotFA trailer frame-by-frame analysis we apparently be able to see all three of them wearing the rings when the White Council attacks Dol Guldur. IIRC the theory was that they White Council really don't need to hide the rings during the attack. They just needed to use them to kick Sauron's and the Nazgul's butts.Laugh

I just did a long post and copied and pasted it into a Word doc because I was sure I'd get post death if I didn't. It posted just fine though.

I wonder how many more I can sneak in?

     Very regal [In reply to]  

I love the detail on that thing. IIRC, in the Cloaks and Daggers book, they said that that's amber in the top of the staff. They put amber in lots of different places around Thranduil's halls, including having streaks of it inlaid in some of the tables, in order to be symbolic of how his kingdom is sort of frozen in time because of his policies.
