Will Jackson insert Thranduil and Tauriel in future LOTR editions?

You know, insert them in the final battle of the Black Gate just for fun

Why not? Given that Jackson is even more crass and tasteless than George Lucas, I could totally envision him doing it.

(In real life, of course, the Elves of Mirkwood were fighting for their lives against assault from Dol Guldur)

And then, in accordance with the Gospel of Lucas, insist he wanted them there all along, but the technology didn't exist for giant mooses... meese?

There'll also be a scene in Rivendell where Gimli discusses every single member of Thorin's company with Bilbo. It'll take 25 minutes.

And they'll digitally replace Old Gloin with Hobbit Gloin.

Wormtongue 2.0 from The Hobbit, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Appendices? Did he even have a name...?

Because what the world really needs, at this crucial pivotal moment when fate hangs in the balance, is a 40 minute pie fight and some platform game moves. Because we wouldn't do anything that wasn't true to Tolkien, oh no.
