Just What The Hobbit Movied Needed, Legolas!
Ten years ago, Orlando Bloom created an iconic character with his portrayal of Legolas. I’m excited to announce today that we’ll be revisiting Middle Earth with him once more. I’m thrilled to be working with Orlando again. Funny thing is, I look older—and he doesn’t! I guess that’s why he makes such a wonderful elf.
It looks like we’ll be seeing the White Council as well, which if you didn’t know already includes Gandalf, Galadriel, and Elrond – and their attack on Dol Guldur will be in the movies, even better, it’s “not just in one scene either.” This seems to confirm the return of Hugo Weaving as Elrond (Ian McKellan and Cate Blanchett are already confirmed), but Jackson doesn’t quite come out and just say it, but really, who else could possibly play Elrond?
