Beorn will be in the DOS and TABA, right?

Beorn will be in the DOS and TABA, right? Can't Post

Sorry for this OCD kind of post, made out of anxiety, and also sorry for clogging up the message boards with two of my threads in one day? But could someone please reassure me that Beorn will be in the movie? Once again, I apologize for this stupid question, but I need some assurance.

Of course. [In reply to] Can't Post

Why would you even worry about that? Persbrandt is cast, sneak peak of his place in the trailer, plays a major part in BOFA etc.

Pretty certain... [In reply to] Can't Post

I myself find it a bit strange that they are being so secretive about Beorn. I'd have thought we'd get a glimpse of non-bear Beorn before Smaug, but maybe they're just doing some last-minute tweaks to his appearance or something. I don't see why they'd cut him out at this point. I mean, they've apparently cast a famous Swedish actor for the role, and we got a glimpse of something that resembled a bear in the trailer, so I don't see why they'd cut him out at this point.

I wouldn't count on it [In reply to] Can't Post

He wasn't mentioned in The Appendices Wink

But Seriously you have absoultely nothing to worry about, he is confirmed for both films, they showed his house in the V.blogs and his bear form in the trailer and the actor portraying him has talked about how his role is expanded from the book

This is not a very interesting signature is it?

They are simply keeping his appearance a surprise [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe they didn't really get round to finishing the Beorn sequences until recently. It's been mentioned that he is an even bigger size than Gandalf, to the Dwarves, so this requires plenty of effects work.

Yep [In reply to] Can't Post

They didn't reveal Radagast until August/September time.

I submit he's been partially revealed already ...

Here's a couple of links for you, for reassurance: [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Peter Jackson says Beorn role will be expanded
2. Richard Armitage talks about Beorn here
3. Persbrandt confirms he will have pick-ups this year
4. Inside of Beorn's house shown in vlog #8
5. The outside of Beorn's house
6. Official description:

The gigantic Beorn is the last of the ancient people of the skin changer: He can transform into a huge bear-like creature. He lives alone, only tolerates the company of his beloved animals and does not appreciate any visitors especially not dwarfs. Gandalf knows that the companions have to take the risk and ask Beorn for help, because otherwise they will hardly survive their journey through Wilderland.

7. Beorn will be a toy, part of the DOS toy line
8. And he's been mentioned in various TV and magazine interviews with the cast and crew.


Coming soon! The first TORn Amateur Symposium, starts Sunday 21st July in the Reading Room. Closing date for essay submission Sunday 14th July, but even if you don't submit, join us for some interesting discussion on some different and personal ways of looking at Tolkien's work.

Why are they doing another 3.75" Gandalf and another 6" Legolas figure?! [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope they will be different somehow. Same with the dwarves.

Beorn WILL be in The Desolation Of Smaug
Beorn SHOULD be in the Battle Of Five Armies in There And Back Again
