Thread: Please include Beorn in The Hobbit Movies
See Beorn topic on wikipedia for details
Beorn adds to the adventure and adds mystery and excitement to the story.
The meeting with Beorn also breaks up the dwarves' long trek to the mountain in a refreshing way.
Beorn was influential in helping to protect Thorin and Company from the wargs (wolves that can talk) and the goblins.
Great to see that the character Beorn has a part to play in the upcoming movies.
Have often thought that the Rankin Bass cartoon classic version of the Hobbit was not complete as it did not include Beorn.
And given Del Toro's love of putting Ron Pearlman in extensive costumes, I can easily see him getting the part.
