In that recent German magazine we learned that there would be some type of orc invasion of Laketown. This is a pretty huge change IMO but I haven't really noticed anyone talking about it. Sooooooo how does everyone feel about? What kind of invasion will it probably be? A tactical mission with a couple sneaky orcs or a full on attack(seems unlikely)? I'm personally intrigued but I am realizing with the whole Smaug/dwarf fight, DG battle and this Laketown episode the ending sequences of DoS could have an incredibly unfamiliar feel compared to the book. While changes/new scenes can be good and refreshing they should still have a feel of the book IMO.

I don't think the German magazine has a clue what it is talking about.

We know that as the Dwarves escape the Elven Kings halls in their barrels, there will be an encounter with orcs along the river to Long Lake. We know the Elves and Men use that river/lake for commerce. So all of this could be what the German magazine misinterpretted as an orc invasion of Laketown. It may be nothing more than the battle along the river spills into the lake or the outskirts of the town.
