Trivia

The only time Legolas blinks, is when he realizes he has been wounded. This is in keeping with the character, as the only time Legolas blinks in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, is when he is strongly surprised.


Quotes

Thrain: Tell Thorin that I love him! Will you do that? Will you tell my grandson that I loved him?
Gandalf: You will tell him yourself!
Thrain: It is too late...
Gandalf: NO!


Goofs

When Legolas is shown in close-up when speaking to Tauriel after he goes out looking for her, Orlando Bloom's left ear piercing hole can be seen.


Alternate Versions

The Extended Edition that was made for the home theater market adds 25 minutes of additional footage. These include the following new or extended scenes:

  • At the Prancing Pony, Gandalf asks Thorin about his business in Bree. Thorin tells him that he is searching for Thrain, his father who was presumed dead after the Battle of Moria; Thrain has supposedly been seen again. Thorin also mentions that Thrain was wearing one of the seven Dwarf Lord rings when he disappeared.
  • After having spent the night in Beorn's house, the Dwarves are discussing how they can get past Beorn unseen; however, Gandalf assures them they will need Beorn's help. Gandalf goes with Bilbo to carefully introduce the group to Beorn, but the Dwarves mistake his gestures for a sign that they should come out of the house, much to Beorn's unpleasant surprise.
  • Upon leaving with Beorn's ponies, Beorn makes the group swear to free the horses before entering the forest. He then has a talk with Gandalf about Azog, the Necromancer at Dol Guldur, the tombs in the mountains (featuring a flashback with a voiceover by Galadriel) and a possible return of Sauron.
  • Gandalf warns the Dwarves not to disturb the water in Mirkwood, use only bridges, and be wary of illusions.
  • The Dwarves find the bridge in Mirkwood destroyed, so they cross the river with the use of vines hanging above the water. Bombur falls in the water and is asleep, so the other Dwarves need to carry him. They see a white stag, which Thorin tries to shoot unsuccessfully. Bilbo states this will bring bad luck.
  • The Master of Laketown and his aid Alfrid talk about Bard and their desire to get rid of his influence on the people of the town. As Alfrid serves the Master a plate of goat and ram's testicles to eat, they discuss a possibility to silence Bard.
  • While being smuggled into Laketown, the Dwarves are discovered. They fight off the guards with the help of the townsfolk. Braga, the captain of the guards, enters, and Bard bribes him into leaving by offering him a fancy piece of underwear for his wife.
  • Master and Alfrid are discussing an old prophecy that when the king of the mountain returns, the streets will run with gold.
  • Alfrid asks whether Thorin can be trusted to keep his word, prompting Bilbo to vouch for him.
  • The remaining Dwarves ask Alfrid to help the wounded Kili, but he coldly dismisses them.
  • Balin describes how the desolation of Smaug was once a lush woodland.
  • While at Dol Guldur, Gandalf is suddenly attacked by a Dwarf. After a brief scuffle, Gandalf recognizes his assailant as Thrain, and uses an enchantment to give him his memory back. Thrain mentions how he lost his finger and the Dwarf Lord ring during the Battle of Moria. He also warns Gandalf that no one should get into Erebor.
  • Gandalf and Thrain are attacked by Azog at Dol Guldur. Gandalf fights him off and they run away, only to be caught by the Necromancer, who uses black smoke tendrils to grab and kill Thrain.
