Another Dwarf Photo from The Hobbit
Posted 07.12.11 by reelz
We've got another look at the work Peter Jackson and his production team are doing on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. MSN recently posted the movie's newest still image, and it features Dean O'Gorman and Aidan Turner looking lithe and battle-ready as Fili and Kili, the two youngest dwarves featured in J.R.R. Tolkien's acclaimed story.
This image is in stark contrast to the short, stout dwarves featured in Jackson's Lord of the Rings adaptations, which featured John Rhys-Davies as Gimli saying that dwarf men and women are so alike that outsiders cannot tell the difference. This newest image compliments the previous release of two other photos, one of the brothers Ori, Nori, and Dori, the other of Oin and Gloin (Gimli's father).
For the uninitiated, the events in The Hobbit take place some 60 years before those in Lord of the Rings. Jackson's movie is scheduled for release on December 14, 2012.
