Peter Jackson’s camp has been steadily releasing images of the company of 13 dwarves that will accompany young Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) in his upcoming adaptation of The Hobbit, dragging things out as much as possible. Now, finally, we have the final and most important one, Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), son of Thráin II, and heir to the Lonely Mountain.
They are, from left to right: Bombur (Stephen Hunter), Bofur (James Nesbitt), Bifur (William Kircher), Nori (Jed Brophy), Ori (Adam Brown), Dori (Mark Hadlow), Thorin (Richard Armitage), Balin (Ken Stott), Dwalin (Graham McTavish), Oin (John Callen), Gloin (Peter Hambleton), Fili (Dean O’Gorman) and Kili (Aidan Turner)
I dig it. Jackson and company are getting a lot more elaborate with the costume design, and it makes for some interesting characters. As one of those who adored all three of Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings films (my personal order of favorites: Fellowship, Two Towers, Return Of The King), I’m pretty damn excited to see this project finally getting off the ground.
