** Robert Kazinsky was originally cast to play Fili, but had to pull out in the first few months of filming, and was replaced by Dean OíGorman. Most of Robís scenes were re-shot, but if you look closely in some of the Bag End scenes, specifically the Misty Mountains song, Robís Fili is still visible. He also appears in a lot of BTS footage

** And Fili and Kili are explicitly stated in the book to be the youngest of the dwarves - still adolescent. It makes sense for them to be essentially skinny gawky boys of 17-ish who haven't filled out or become capable of growing decent dwarf-standard beards yet.

* [[spoiler:And he doesn't even manage to wipe out the line of Durin properly; Dáin Ironfoot is closely related to Thorin, Fili and Kili, and although it isn't stated in the films, he becomes Durin's heir after their deaths.]]

**And Galadriel, who is literally older than the freaking sun and moon (both relatively recent additions to the world's cosmology) and one of the oldest Elves still in Middle-earth. Elrond is a child next to her.

*** Given Thranduil's attitude in general, it's not out of the question that, given that his house is still royal (and technically at least ''has'' Sindarin blood), he might be frowning on it because Tauriel is born pure Silvan and a commoner, without so much as a trace of royal or Sindarin blood.

* AdaptationalBadass: Aside from characters themselves made more badass than in the book, there's also the Black Arrow(s). In the book, Bard gives some weight to it, but it at least ''looks'' like an ordinary arrow. Here, a Black Arrow is made of metal and over three feet long, making them closer to ballista bolts than arrows.
** It ''is'' a ballista bolt. When the company first arrives in Laketown, it is specifically pointed out that only a black arrow fired from a Dwarvish windlance (fancy name for a ballista -- you even get to see one) had a chance of piercing a dragon's hide. In the backstory, this is why Smaug had a missing scale that Bard was later able to shoot through. Bard's grandfather had hit Smaug with a black arrow from a windlance, but it was a glancing blow and only knocked a scale off rather than killing him. It's implied that even with the black arrow, it wouldn't be able to kill Smaug unless launched from a windlance, and that the missing scale was the only reason it did.

bolts.



** [[spoiler: Smaug is on a rampage in the Forge which has a massive blast furnace. Those pillars were specifically designed so that someone standing behind them would be safe from rather large waves of heat. Even then, the adventuring dwarves had to shed burning clothes on occasion. As for riding a wheelbarrow on a river of gold? Thorin did that on a wheelbarrow that was covered in ice almost immediately after the gold started flowing and only stayed on for a few seconds.]]

** With the exception of Thorin, who's simply an all-around {{badass}}, the dwarves in the company range from mildly goofy to downright madcap, but they're ''all'' a force to be reckoned with in a fight (even Ori, who manages to land a few good hits with his slingshot).

* BritishAccents: A multitude of British accents from all over the Isles are on display amongst the cast, which are used with great effect to enhance the personalities of their various characters.
** The typically gruff, doughty dwarves tend to have either [[BraveScot Scottish]] (Balin, Dwalin, etc.) or [[OopNorth Northern English (Yorkshire)]] accents (Thorin, Fíli, etc.). This suits their earthy, plain-speaking personalities.
** Cheeky, congenial Bofur is voiced with James Nesbitt's own Northern Irish accent.
** The higher status characters (Gandalf, Galadriel, Elrond, etc.) all speak with RP (the Queen's English) accents to enhance the gravitas of their station and relative sophistication -- and even the Goblin King uses an RP-esque accent, compared to his Cockney-accented Goblin brood, to highlight him as the leader. Bilbo and Frodo (arguably hobbit gentry) also speak in RP, but veering more towards a less clipped, Estuary accent.
** The three trolls speak with Ray Winstone-esque, theatrical Cockney accents (which they also had in the book) similar to the goblins, showing how they're all thuggish creatures.
** Smaug is voiced using Creator/BenedictCumberbatch's own RP accent, albeit with added reverberation/boom.
** The citizens of Lake Town all have vaguely West Country-sounding accents, in keeping with the conception of Lake Town as a rough smugglers' port city. The exception is Bard himself, who uses Luke Evans's native Welsh accent to differentiate his lineage as a native of Dale.
