It’s been a while since we’ve seen any news from Peter Jackson’s camp about the next Hobbit film, the Desolation of Smaug. But today, we were greeted with this stellar official photo of Evangeline Lilly’s character!

Lilly plays as the elf warrior Tauriel, is considerably younger than elves like Legolas (thus more feisty) and the only female elf in the movie as part of the Woodland Elves from Tolkien’s original work.

I personally think she looks fantastic and as a huge fan of Lost (Lilly’s first big break), I think she’ll fit this role to a T.

What do you guys think about the look?
