Get to Know the Company of Dwarves on 'The Hobbit' Cheat Sheet
Is that Oin or Gloin? Or is it Nori, Dori or Ori? Or Dwalin? Just something a little fun for The Hobbit release weekend. This comical "cheat sheet" for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, now playing in theaters everywhere, was found on LOTR Project. There's a total of 13 dwarves we're introduced to who make up Thorin's Company, and while the movie runs nearly 3 hours, we still don't get enough time with each of them, since so many play individually important roles. However, if their names and faces were getting a little confusing for you, this cheat sheet is a fun and easy way to get to know your dwarves! Enjoy.
"Very soon a lot of people will be glóin to the Hobbit… However, there are 13 dwarves and many will not have seen them bifur. I don't want people balin on seeing the movie so here is a cheat sheet." Via LOTR Proj
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 technology. The Hobbit follows the journey of 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 Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters in 3D/48FPS December 14th.
I loved James Nesbitt as Bofur and Adam Brown as Ori. I hope the other dwarves get more screen time in the future films...there is no excuse if they don't. Jackson has got two extra films to do so. Kinda awesome we get to see Ori in the fellowship...even if he is a corpse.

And Balin...even though his tomb gets destroyed.

I loved the LOTR movies, hows this one measure up to the others??

Its a different film altogether. It is light and more humorous than LotR. Its a children's tale through and through. I loved it and the audience in the theater I went to all laughed and had a great time as well.

Head over to Empire online(or link their video here?) and see the cast play "How fast can you name all the Dwarves" ? Think best was 6 seconds?
