JoBlo reports that Jackson showed off art of Elvish stronghold of Thranduil?s realm in Mirkwood as well as some set footage of Legolas (Bloom) and Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly). Tauriel is an original character, and over footage of her laying into some orcs, Jackson said, ?We?re quite excited about the storyline we have created for Tauriel. As you can see, she?s not an Elf Guard to be messed with.? I didn?t see the presentation, but I assume Jackson didn?t go on to say, ?Also, we really needed some female characters in these movies. There are like, almost none.?

Jackson also showed some behind-the-scenes footage of Lake Town where we see the town?s master (Fry) and the heroic Bard the Bowman (Evans). Evans says he?s headed back to set in June for reshoots, and I?m curious if some of that filming might also include the extra footage needed to expand The Hobbit into a trilogy.

Fans were also shown a new scene from the film where Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and Radagast the Brown (Sylvester McCoy) investigate Dol Goldur. Here?s what JoBlo had to say:

It?s an abandoned crypt where it is revealed that it has been opened ?from the inside.? It?s a pretty spooky scene, actually, and really plays up the evil elements of the series, which were hinted at with the necromancer from the first film (and which Jackson confirms here, will be back).

Finally, Jackson says the first trailer is due out this summer

Damn, Evangeline Lilly looks so beautiful (both as a human and an elf).

I'm not usually supportive of deviating from a classic like The Hobbit and creating original characters, but I believe Jackson will do it right, and Lilly is just so fine.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug featuring new character, Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly). Tauriel is slightly controversial because she?s not in any of J.R.R. Tolkien?s books, but she does serve the purpose of giving the series a female warrior elf, which I have no problem with. Lilly explained her character by saying, ?Tauriel is the head of the Elven Guard. She?s a Sylvan Elf, which means she?s of a much lower order than the elves we all became acquainted with in The Lord of the Rings. She doesn?t hold the same kind of status that Arwen or Galadriel or Elrond or Legolas do ? she?s much more lowly. She sort of goes against the social order of the elves a little bit.?

She kinda looks like Liv Tyler (Arwen) a bit.

I like how Orlando Bloom AND Luke Evans are in this. They both look alike.
