Epic First Look Photo: Dwarves Dori, Nori and Ori from 'The Hobbit'!

Dori, Nori and Ori from The Hobbit

These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he's not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it's guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Thanks to ComingSoon, we have our first look at Jed Brophy as Nori, Adam Brown as Ori and Mark Hadlow as Dori in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. I love how epic and awesome this first look photo is, it's even better than the first three. Check it out below!

Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide any anyone who means harm to one of these brothers. I love it, can't wait for more!

The Hobbit First Look Photo

We'll update this with a higher res download link when available, for now this is as big as we could find!

In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit… The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson in two separate parts, is set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The Hobbit films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, will be shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest camera and stereo technology. The Hobbit follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The first part of The Hobbit hits theaters December 2012.

      i hate repeating a comment that's already made; but, yea...........AWESOME!
  • That's incredible. Loving these pictures that keep rolling out. Every one draws me deeper into the burning desire to see these films.
  • osmados
    They look pretty awesome! but at the same time, they don't really look like Gimli... they look quite different!!!

      Racist 😛

        Haha... I was debating whether to acknowledge how racist that sounded lol... but I feel I do have a point!!! Where is Gimli's great big bushy beard?

          all men don't look exactly alike - why should dwarves?
          • osmados
            My comment above acknowledges that... I didn't say they should look identical.... just that they look very dissimilar
          • I think osmados talking abouut that they look neat to be a regular dwarf even royalty ... uhmm for me they looks fine but not awesome.. sorry guys..

          They have them braided and plated.  Wouldn't want all that hair getting in the way.

      i hear ya!  The only dwarves I'd seen were at the counsel in the first one and they all resembled Gimli.  Even the dead ones in Moria had similar outfits.  Heck, the one in the middle is dressed more like Strider than what we've seen of dwarves! (HA!)   They cant be showing me stuff like this cause it literally makes me want to 'hibernate' for next 18 months.
    • Agreed, they look more hobbit than dwarfish.  A little to fragile for the hearty warlord type mining race.  These look more like dwarven fancymen.

      im pretty sure Gimli was from a completely different area than these three. i'd love a LOTR enthusiast to please shed some light on this...

    Having really only seen Gimli & Gloin with their axes it's kinda crazy to see Jackson's dwarves with a sword and a kanabo!  This is SOOOO sick! CANT. WAIT!!!

    This is cool, but how is it "epic"? There's no sweeping landscapes or sense of grand narrative. Just cool costumes and makeup.
  • Why would dwarfs care about their hair as much as these three look like they do? Maybe its just the silly pointed hair-do that bothers me . . .  otherwise they look pretty damn cool.
  • phil
    This makes me fear the worst for the Hobbit! i love the LOTR trilogies, but this looks like a step in the WRONG direction! looks awful!
    • Anne
      Really? Dwarves are rich miners, why shouldn't they look like they come from a higher class of dwarves than say Gimli?  It's no different than Bilbo and Frodo being in a higher class of hobbits than Sam or Pippin.
  • Scott of the Antarctic
    Does anyone else see Del Toro's influence in these dudes?
  • Brandon
  • esophus
    The art direction is flawless!
  • Oh Yeah loving it so far.
  • Wow Peter Jackson puts so much effort into these movies. I love it.
  • concerned fan
    they look like crap. dwarves aren't supposed to resemble hobbits. they're short but stocky from working in mines and forging weapons all day. here they look like they spend all their time braiding hair and sewing robes. so disappointed...
  • Rob
    The one on the left..there's something about his ear's that doesn't look right...
    • DevGau614
       They appear to be too high set on his head...
  • beoran
    the hobbit and cast look fine, Gloin looks like Gimli a bit I do not think Tolkien would want them all to look alike?
