All this past week, we’ve been treated to our first look at the group of dwarfs Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins joins on a quest across Middle Earth in Peter Jackson’s upcoming The Hobbit. And finally we end this run of pictures with Richard Ardarmitage as the group’s leader, Thorin Oakenshield. (Click for a much bigger version.)
As you can see, it is premiering exclusively on the Tolkien fan site TheOneRing.net. However, as of this writing, it looks like Jackson may have jumped the gun on them by linking to the picture on his Facebook page before The One Ring could get their actual post published.
I have to say that I really love how all of the dwarfs have their own unique looks to them. I expected nothing less from Jackson and his team, but after years of seeing the dwarfs depicted as fairly similar with only the color of their cloaks to differentiate them, this is absolutely refreshing.
