I would have been really happy with that. To be honest, I find Arondir one of the more intriguing characters and a few of the other new ones. Even the Harfoots are okay, if they square up one of the major inconsistencies (they claim to be communal but ditch people when they migrate, it's just odd), and if they hadn't dragged it into this stupid Stranger bit where the show is alluding it to be a major established character. (Whether or not it is, it's distracting from a more original plotline.)I am totally fine with the increased diversity. I would have preferred for the writers to just create mostly new characters in the universe and tell their stories. There was so much to expand. Instead they did this......
I wish they weren't muddying it down with trying to rewrite/retcon established characters and places and events. Something new, just set in the world appropriately, would have been more interesting. And we all see now how it is threatening to derail the show because Tolkien's world was very laid out.
