Bilbo needs to free the dwarves [In reply to] Can't Post

It would be a major departure from his character arc if he doesn't. Plus, if we're seeing him sneak around with the ring, he should "put it to good use" IMO. After all, it's the first time he uses his invisibility to help the dwarves.

I would guess this is more in relation to the BOFA [In reply to] Can't Post

The mighty Elf-lord and legendary warrior Thranduil is Legolas s father. As King of the Woodland Realm he rules over the north of a large forest area, once known as the Green Forest that now bears the ominous name Mirkwood. During the long years of darkness Thranduil has increasingly isolated from the outside world he cares only about his own people. An ancient, bitter feud led to the situation that he basically rejects all dwarves and especially a certain dwarf, namely Thorin Oakenshield.

I would guess therefore, looking at the two character bios together, that it will be the relationship with the outside world which is the subject of disagreement.

I'd bet [In reply to] Can't Post

that Legolas will be uncomfortable with the treatment of the dwarves, but will (grudgingly) respect his father's wishes. It's when they start fighting over treasure at the Mountain that we may see open defiance.

I'm generally not a Bloom fan, but for whatever reason I really liked him as Legolas. [In reply to] Can't Post

So I honestly don't mind that he's in this.

Absolutely right. [In reply to] Can't Post

would be unjustifiable if Legolas is the one who freed Gimli's father. So I don't think so, it would be incoherent

Bilbo is the one to free them using the ring. Involving Legolas in this matter would strongly contradict the PJ LOTR Trilogy.

"But a small dark figure that none had observed sprang out of the shadows and gave a hoarse shout: 'Baruk Khazd! Khazd ai-mnu!' An axe swung and swept back. Two Orcs fell headless. The rest fled."
