Treebeard will be in the movie. John Rhys-Davies is doing his voice.
Apparently, the weekend before Christmas, Peter told reporters that
more screen time would be devoted to "the king and his son" (as some
reports put it). I have since seen conflicting explanations/reports
which state that more time will be given to Denethor and Faramir
(only Faramir appears in the second book) or to Theoden and Eomer.
It appears that the biggest change will occur with Arwen. It remains
to be scene whether her part in the movie -- as filmed -- makes the
cut, but there are screen captures of her in Lothlorien with
Galadriel and Celeborn on some Web sites. She also reportedly leads
a company of Elves to Rohan with Haldir of Lothlorien.
On the other hand, Ian McKellen said that she will not appear in
Rohan before her marriage to Aragorn. But then, he also said (last
year) that there would be no prologue to the movie, and he had to
retract that claim in late November or early December, after he
finally saw the movie for the first time.
