This is Beorn

The first (terribly low-quality) still of Beorn from the Desolation of Smaug was leaked. It’s real since Warner asked the original source to take down the photo. I was hoping for them not to cut out Beorn from the film and my wish came true! However, unless Beorn morphs into a porcupine, I am not feeling that haircape. 

A bit of background: Gandalf said that Beorn is “very strong” and he is a “skin-changer.” In fact, Beorn transforms into a bear, along with others like him. Also, he likes stories and lives with giant bees.

And no folks, this is not Ron Perlman’s seminal television series, Beauty and the Beast. Although that point is still moot.

Desolation of Smaug

Where have I been?

Apparently, the trailer for the second part of The Hobbit have been out since June. For something which I have been eagerly anticipating, it’s astounding how much I’ve forgotten about this one. Nevertheless, here it is and I’m excited! This part of the book is, in my humble opinion, the best part. Mirkwood, Lake-town, Ungoliant’s spawn, Wood elves, Thranduil! Did I mention Thranduil? I just hope they don’t cut out Beorn.

The trilogy is slowly building up, so it’s safe to say that this one would probably end just before the Battle of the Five Armies.
