Evangeline Lilly as Elf Tauriel
Is it just me, or does Evangeline Lilly look a little weird as elf Tauriel in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug?
Also, the trailer seems a little underwhelming. It looks like we’re back for more goblin and orc fighting whilst traversing harsh landscapes when a call to Eagle Cab Services would have made the entire journey to the entrance of the lonely mountain redundant.
An interesting point on the character of Tauriel. She’s a brand new character created for the film, and wasn’t in the book. Legolas, who’s back in this one, was not involved in the events in The Hobbit as well.
Will be interesting to see how it all turns out.
Also, didn’t know Smaug can actually speak (in a british accent, voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch!).
Check out the trailer.
