    Hi
    Does anyone know if Elrond's twin sons will be in ROTK? That would be cool.. aren't they the one that brings Arwen's banner to Aragorn? Or will Arwen bring it herself? hmm.. so many questions..

    I don't believe they are going to be in the movie. We wish they were, but I doubt it. :(

    Yeah, the more characters added, the more confusing it would be. Nonbookreaders would wonder why they never saw Arwens brothers in FotR.

    I guess it coulda been them. They certainly aren't introduced to the audience that way. I think Radagast is right, too many characters means we probably won't see them - at least not in any significant way. Which is why we have Arwen instead of Glorfindel taking Frodo to Rivendell - but don't get me started on that one...:D

    There's also a group of Dunedain Rangers that come down with the brothers and fight under Aragorns command. We pry won't see them cause it would be too confusing with Faramir's rangers already present.

    lovely: no twins, no Glorfindel, no beregond, no bergil, no Imrahil, no dunadan (northern ones), no halbarad, but instead Haldir getting done at helmsdeep quite soon after his well-dressed arivall.

    I'd say we beat peter jackson up for this. confusing or no, at least he could have included the twins.

    Screw Faramir's "Rangers"... who runs away and deserts their captain so eventually an old shiny dude has to save him? That's right Faramir's sad excuses for "Rangers". I want my Grey Company, darn it! Oh sure lets replace the Grey Company with Elrond, real good plan!(Not ranting at you Glorfindel but at PJ, even though I'm still gonna go into comatose when I see the movie)

    The twins are nowhere in the previews or either of the video games. We know that Elrond gives Aragorn Anduril before he enters the paths of the dead with only L & G. There are also rumors that Arwen is part of the sword presentation part too.

    Grrr... It irks usss it doesss. (OK, little Gollum moment there :D ) I know whatever PJ does will end up looking good, but I will still miss the rangers of the North. I hope to heaven Arwen isn't there. It will make it so cheesy. All this cutting and chopping makes me wonder if they'll have time for the whole Eowyn/Faramir thing.....

    They'd better include Faramir/Eowyn.
    I can't stand that Arwen, though.

    ROTK is too epic in my opinion to include every little stinking detail but i agree with you on the dunedain and imrahil btw why cant beregond hes an important character

    OK I have heard some suff that is about to make me cry, I already knew and cried about the dunedain and sons of elrond. But now cuting out Beregond and bergil, thats not possible, he saves faramir, don' tell me that denethor is not going to try commite suicide and attempted murder, if they cut that I will personal alsdgfl;hsadghasljdghlshdgl;kjsglkjsdgjlkaglkhadjgkhasldghjkasvhbpka hgjkasdhgjl;kahduoig

    Ya you heard me PJ, But cutting Prince Imrahil, That is impossible and I refuse to beleive that PJ would cut him till I see for myself.It can't be done, then again he cut out all the grey company and their spooky companions, which THE WAR COULD NOT HAVE BEEN WON WITHOUT!!!!!!! Ok, I think I am done, I ain;t even gonna go into all the crap about the other movies messed up scenes, breahe deep breaths EBM ok deep breaths(MUST HURT PJ BADLY, no EBM deep breaths in and out, MUST KILL PJ!!!!!!!,

    In the movies, there is no grey company and the battle of the pellenor fields is largely won by the army of the death.
    Pippin is the one that saves Faramir from the pyre so you do not have to go through your asldjjslasha;dkksidjdsndndhsgjdkskkakdk-thing. Sadly, no Imrahil, twins or even Beregond will be around.

    No, the sons of elrond were not present at the council. the only elves present were Elrond, Legolas, Silinde (right of Legolas), Galdor (left of Legolas), Figwit (next to Aragorn), Erestor (left of Elrond), and Saelbeth (left of Gandalf) -- I cant remember the names of the other two elves who were present, but the one on Elronds right is another advisor to Elrond, though unlike Erestor, this one sailed in from Valinor; the other (who is next to Figwit) is there to represent the sons of Elrond. This one might possibly be Elladan or Elrohir, but its doubtful.
