From WENN.com: Liv Tyler wants to re-team with her Lord of the Rings castmates Sir Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, and Elijah Wood by joining the cast of the highly-anticipated prequel The Hobbit. The actress played Arwen in the first three films in the fantasy franchise, but she has so far been left out of the line-up for Peter Jackson’s new epic adventure. Tyler admits seeing the rest of the Lord Of The Rings cast get back together has made her long for a cameo role. She tells Britain’s Daily Express, “I’ve seen some of the other actors. I had such an amazing time making those films. I wish that I could be in it.”

    The story of Aragorn and Arwen was an important subtheme in the LOTR movies, and enhanced their enjoyment by those who weren’t already confirmed Tolkien fans.  Ideally, that story background should find a place in the second Hobbit film.  At the least, the Arwen character should make an appearance in that film since the Tolkien timeline would have her either at Rivendel or Lothlorien during the events leading to the war against Sauron’s forces in Dol Goldur.

  3. Arwen would have been at Rivendell at the time of The Hobbit, but of course Aragorn would not (having already left, if memory serves, to draw Sauron’s might away from the elves). As the daughter of Elrond she most certainly would have met Bilbo and Gandalf, but did not meet Aragorn again until the meeting told in LotRs. Had the bridging material survived, there would have been scope to incorporate Arwen and some of her and Aragorn’s back story. As it is, a cameo would logically be the correct thing to do in terms of internal story logic, but perhaps expensive in terms of the production, seeing that she would add nothing to the story. Unless Liv Tyler, whom I admire a great deal, paid all her own expenses to make the appearance and Peter Jackson had time to accommodate her.

    • No, she would not have been there, but yes, Aragorn would have been.

      Aragorn was born in III 2931.  He was at Rivendell from sometime soon after III 2933, as his mother Gilraen brought him there after his father was killed by Orcs in his second year of life.  

      Arwen does not meet him until he’s 20, which would have been III 2951, ten years after the Quest of Erebor.  Until that time she was away in Lorien visiting with her kin.

      Sad really.  Rather hard to fudge as she does not meet Aragorn when he’s a tiny child, she meets him when he is fresh in manhood, at age 20. 

      Aragorn was at Rivendell in III 2941 though so it would be interesting to see him there at 10 years of age!

  4. Is there a reason Arwen can’t be in Rivendell in either the “there” or “back again” part of the films?  I can’t think of one.

    Please, please…NO.

    She’s in! Filming starts at my home A.S.A.P. I’ve got the outfits, all she has to do is show! Just kidding (or am I?)  Although extremely beautiful I think she’d have to stay out of this one.  It’s best.  Yet I cry a little inside.

    It would be great to see Arwen again!!!
    The 2. hobbit movie could show what had happened between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and how she met Aragorn (please bring back Aragorn too ! 🙂 At the time of The Hobbit Arwen is approximately 2700 years old and she lives until the age of 2901.

    Arwen was at Lothlorien when Bilbo was in  Rivendell. Please no more cameos, no more returning characters and no extra ones either. Peter are you listening?

    go f yourself liv tyler, you almost ruined lotr for me with your horrible acting

    • Joe

      If you dont like her fine but no need to be insulting. By the way, I am betting that you cant act at all…

  13. It’s true that Arwen was in Lorien when Bilbo’s party arrived at Rivendell.  Actually it’s rather hard to put Arwen at Rivendell and remain true to the larger story, as she doesn’t meet Aragorn until she returns from Lorien, and that’s when Aragorn is about 20.  Aragorn had been at Rivendell from the time he was two.  So Aragorn CAN be at Rivendell!  But not Arwen.

    Sad, as I love Liv Tyler and think she’s a beautiful, enhanting addition to the movies.

    As long as it doesn’t interfere with the storyline, I would like to see Arwen again. It would definitely be reasonable for us to see her in Rivendell during Bilbo’s stay there.

     Oh, please no!

    I think a cameo can be fitted in for Liv.  There are many scenes within
     The Hobbit book  than can be carried over into the picture and have Liv do a piece.  She does not have to play an elf or be recognisable.  She could be the maid of Lake Town, or even Bard’s daughter.

    After reading the discussion here, now I’m more interested in seeing a young Aragorn make a cameo in Rivendell. It’d be fun to see Liv again for a a moment or two, but it makes internal story sense since she’s apparently in Lorien.
