The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is due to land in theaters in a couple of months and , who plays the bow and arrow-wielding elf Legolas in the movie, has been talking to Hitfix about what we can expect from our return to Middle Earth.
First up Bloom was asked whether he had had any reservations about appearing in the movie, especially considering that Legolas doesn't appear in the source material and the huge expectations for the series following the stellar success of Lord of the Rings:
Not after I had spoken to Peter. Their ideas, which I have explained, were made to clear to me about how it could be made seamless and effective. Not after I'd had that conversation. It was definitely something that anyone would think. There's a big love for these books and these films and these stories. I think in the hands of Peter, the fans, I would hope, would feel rest assured that he will deliver a movie that will both entertain and [that they will] enjoy and will be in keeping with Tolkien's vision of the stories.
Yes, yes, that's all well and good Mr Bloom, but what I really want to know is, will there be any dwarf tossing in the sequel?
There's some fun other dwarf moments coming up. I don’t want to give too much away, but there will be some fun interaction.
Excellent. Toss those dwarfs, toss them all.
