It's that time of the week, folks! Peter Jackson has just unveiled the first promo photos featuring dwarves Fili & Kili, played by Dean O' Gorman and Aidan Turner respectively. As usual they've also provided a handy bio for idiots like me who can no longer remember reading this book as a youngster:

"Two of the youngest Dwarves, Fili and Kili have been born into the royal line of Durin and raised under the stern guardianship of their uncle, Thorin Oakensheild. Neither has ever travelled far, nor ever seen the fabled Dwarf City of Erebor. For both, the journey to the Lonely Mountain represents adventure and excitement. Skilled fighters, both brothers set off on their adventure armed with the invincible courage of youth, neither being able to imagine the fate which lies before them."

Let's have a look-see...

Read on for our previous Dwarf updates...



And now, here's our first look at Oin & Gloin! "Distant cousins of Thorin Oakenshield, these two doughty Northern Dwarves join the Company out of a sense of loyalty to their kin, and also because they have a substantial sum of money invested in the venture. Along with Bombur, Gloin is the only other married Dwarf in the Company (there being a shortage of female dwarves in general). His wife is an acclaimed beauty with a particularly fine beard. Gloin is the proud father of a young son, Gimli, who will go on to become part of the famous Fellowship of the Ring."

Stay tuned for more HOBBIT character reveals!



Hot on the furry heels of our recent look at Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins comes this - the first promo photo revealing Jackson's envisioning of Dwarves Nori, Dori, and Ori.

Check it out...

Yep, they're small alright!

"These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori (Mark Hadlow), the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori (Adam Brown), the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori (Jed Brophy) gets up to most of the time, except that it’s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide any anyone who means harm to one of these brothers."

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY is released on December 14th 2012, with part two THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN following a year later.
