Portrayal in adaptations Edit

The Hobbit film trilogy Edit

In The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Dís is mentioned by Kíli after he has been captured by Wood-elves, and is being kept prisoner in a cell. He talks about her to Tauriel, one of the elves, and explains that a Dwarf-runed talisman he was holding is meant to remind him of the promise he made to his mother to return.

In The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, when Fíli, Kíli, Oin and Bofur arrive in the Lonely Mountain following Smaug's demise, Thorin welcomes Fíli and Kíli as his sister-sons.
