Just my guess here...(book spoilers mixed in) [In reply to] Can't Post

Thranduil and his people who traveled with him to the Mountain are staying in Dale, rather than on the open ground that they do in the book. Bilbo has climbed over the wall at this point, and has found Gandalf within the camp in Dale. He walks with him, to find Legolas and Tauriel arriving to support Thranduil in case a fight should break out. Then...comes the Orc-surprise.

We've seen shots in the vlogs showing Gandalf, and others, fighting Orcs on the streets of Dale. Maybe this is just continuing coverage of the BoFA. It could spill into the city, rather than only on open ground around the foot of the Mountain. And Bilbo would have gone back to the dwarves, to shock Thorin with the Arkenstone scene. So I think the only thing that really changes much is that Gandalf meets Bilbo in the Elven camp earlier than in the book (where Bilbo meets Gandalf as he is walking back to the Mountain). That's not to say that Gandalf hadn't been in Thranduil's camp for a little while beforehand. There is no explicit mentioning of when he arrived at Erebor. We know when the assault on DG happens, but nothing of his travels afterwards (anyone step in here if I've missed something/given erroneous facts, as I do every once and awhile CrazyBlushSmile).

That's all entirely based on me trying to fit together the bits and pieces we've seen along with book events. But of course, there may be alterations/additions made to this that falsify my thoughts. But if my guesses above are remotely correct, there really wouldn't be that much difference from the text here.
