I've heard reports that the production is very pleased with how Beorn turned out, but we've only seen a few brief shots of him giving chase in his bear form. I never could have imagined that we'd both see and hear Smaug before him!

I have to wonder if he might finally make an appearance in the tv spots...

October 15th [In reply to] Can't Post

My understanding is the next wave of action figures is scheduled to launch on October 15th, and Beorn is listed as one of those figures.

It's unfortunate if our first clear look at the character is the toy version, but that's just what we'll have to work with.

I think that's the exact reason [In reply to] Can't Post

We haven't seen him. They are very pleased with him and want it to be a very pleasant surprise indeed.

agree [In reply to] Can't Post

The stuff that is the coolest and what they might be most proud of is going to be the stuff we don't see until the actual movie.

Smaug is to big to be left out of the trailers, but they have not given up much

We'll stay tuned! [In reply to] Can't Post

Let's hope indeed they're keeping him behind locks because he's so good and not because he's so bad! Tongue

Gets twisted 'round some other way
And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied

It's nice we're not revealed everything [In reply to] Can't Post

Though we'll probably get a better look at Beorn before the movie comes out, it'd be great if he was a surprise to us all.

Totally understand... [In reply to] Can't Post

I can totally understand the marketing logic to revealing bits and pieces of Smaug. They have to do this to lure the general audience, so the will undoubtedly be more excited for the movie when they see those bits. Beorn is a smaller and more fan-oriented sort of character so there is no urgent need to reveal him. I'm sure as the marketing campaign rolls foward we will see more of him, in bear form at least, as it adds something new to Middle-Earth. But I'm avaiding all the marketing going forward as I want him revealed during the movie on 12-13-13!
