The Hobbit Dwarves

"Feeling tricksy my precious?" The beginning of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit is getting closer every day. Only two more months left until The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey lands in theaters, introducing us to Martin Freeman as the younger, new Bilbo Baggins, along with Ian McKellen as Gandalf. But they're also joined by a Company of 12 Dwarves, which were introduced late last year in sets of character photos. A new banner has debuted featuring all 12 of them, with their names, and of course Bilbo & Gandalf. There's also a new online game called Riddles in the Dark to view as well. So we've got Thorin, Gloin, Oin, Balin…

Here's the new dwarves banner, split in half so you can read some of the text for them. Full via

Riddles in the Dark

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, 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 films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. 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 on December 14th.

I'm curious....all the dwarfs look like each other (as in you can tell they're all dwarfs) except Kili. He looks more like a man than a dwarf. I wonder why that is?

I agree but I also think Fili and Thorin look like men as well and not dwarves. I don't like that they spared the dwarf makeup on some of these actors especially Kili. It's like Peter Jackson decided we needed a pretty boy dwarf for the girls. Bad decision in my opinion but otherwise I'm sure this will be a great, fun movie.

I don't know if it's the photoshop, but it looks like a cartoon..
