    In the Thranduil scene with Legolas he says:

    "His father Arathorn was a good man, his son might grow to be a great one."

    I am pretty sure they never crossed path. With the dunedain being where they are and Thranduil locking himself in his own kingdom.

    So was this just fanfiction that they somehow crossed path with each other?

    PJ painted himself in a corner here. In the movies, you don't have the timeframe of the books, where it is really drawn out. This is basically PJ's bad example of tying in the movies. It seemed more like a tie in to LOTR for the sake of tying in to LOTR than actually believing it.

    As for your question, I don't think they ever crossed paths, or how Thranduil will know about Arathorn and Aragorn, he wouldn't! He was probably the most solitary elf in the Third Age of Middle-earth.

    All in all, this is just a poorly done tie-in.

    Hope this helps,
