In the Season 4 Casting Call thread here https://forums.signumuniversity.org/index.php?threads/season-4-casting-call.3020/page-4#post-23812, there was a short discussion on whether or not we should have talking animals. Should we have talking animals in the project? For example Thorondor has to have some means of communicating with characters like Fingon (when he rescues Maedhros) and Turgon (as Thorondor guards Gondolin for centuries and informs him of Fingolfin’s death) without looking silly. Plus, Huan is prophesied to speak three times in his lifetime; it’s a defining characteristic. I think we should have talking animals and it can be done without looking weird.
