"I’m going on an adventure!"
Richard, Martin, & Elijah @ AUJ Japan Premiere (2012)
The young Dwarf prince took work where he could find it, labouring in the villages of Men. But always he remembered the mountain smoke beneath the moon, the trees like torches blazing bright, for he had seen dragon-fire in the sky and a city turned to ash. And he never forgave… and he never forgot.
"The night I was cast, I went out and bought The Empire Strikes Back and Jaws. My goals were to get a voice as sinister as Darth Vader and the menacing physicality of the shark. It’s so easy to take these big beasts – these ferocious characters – and cook them at ten the whole time. But I wanted to have this circling, steady presence that would suddenly attack randomly."
Manu Bennett on Azog
"It was in an early draft that Thorin felt like he didn’t want to bring Fili and Kili along on this quest, he knows the horror that is in that mountain. Leading your own kin to that place… it’s such a big thing to do. Actually, in the film too, they explore the breakdown of that idea. That Thorin doesn’t want to continue with his nephews.”

As the great wealth of the Dwarves grew, their store of good will ran thin. No one knows exactly what began the rift. The Elves say the Dwarves stole their treasure. The Dwarves tell another tale. They say the Elven King refused to give them their rightful pay.
