The first photo of the dwarves from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey have surfaced online courtesy of New Line. The image shows Bilbo’s travel companions Nori, Ori and Dori (the actors Jed Brophy, Adam Brown and Mark Hadlow respectively) in full gear ready for their adventures/misadventures through Middle Earth.
Needless to say, they look pretty amazing. I know Peter Jackson knows what he is doing, but this only further cements that thought. I always shudder to think about what Tolkien’s books would have looked like in the wrong hands, but luckily I will never have to see that nightmare come true. I can’t wait for December 2012. Visit IGN for more details on the story.
