She was around in Middle-Earth already in the first age (see The Silmarillion). I guess we're gonna get a second plotline about the bigger things going on in Middle-Earth, with Elrond, Galadriel and Gandalf.

Galadriel doesn't belong in the Hobbit...if it was Legolas, fair enough since he lived there at that point anyway. I don't like that they're taking liberties with the plot.
Apparently a new Amy Winehouse 'Greatest Hits' collection is coming out, but the tinfoil and spoons aren't included.

She put together the White Council that decided to drive Sauron from Dol Guldur, a plot point that is going to form a major part of these films. It actually makes sense, to be fair.

I know, i just think they're pushing it by throwing shit in there that we don't see and inventing conversations that to my knowledge Tolkein never wrote. Maybe they should rename the films "Peter Jackson's Interpretation of the Hobbit".

Oh ok. Then I agree. It's just a way of padding the film and "linking" it to Jackson's trilogy. Unnecessary.

Depends how thе character is linked to the trilogy. Jackson's been Tolkiens fan for ages. I doubt if there's someone else who knows Tolkiens' work better than him. IMO whatever liberties he takes, he'll do it a way that won't contradict the book. Besides he's one who takes risks and who isn't afraid of challenges. One of the things typical of the first 3 movies was that Jackson followed the book very closely and every little detail was the way Tollkien described it. Now he obviously changed his approach. I'm personally intrigued :thumbsup:

I thought was in the Silmarillion? Or was it in the appendices of the Hobbit? I can't quite remember. Not read the Hobbit in a while; the Lord of the Rings is my main read, once a year during the summer (my god I am a sad bastard). But I know that Galadriel was never in the main plot for the Hobbit, so am intrigued to see what this will be about.
I think it is high time for a bit of class around here, don't you?

I´m quite (but not completely) sure it was in Silmarillion.

Btw, if you are a sad bastard, at least you are not alone.

Nope, happened during the narrative of The Hobbit, though it's not shown in the main plot. It's why Gandalf kept wandering off for his own business throughout the story.

Going to have to disagree with much of this; Jackson took plenty of liberties and they contradicted the spirit of the books. Turning Aragorn into typical flawed Hollywood leading man instead of the proud lord from the book, Frodo turning against Sam, the Elves being defeatist assholes... I could go on.

I adore the films, I truly do (especially Fellowship). But as adaptations, they often leave me ripping my hair out.
