We’ve already seen Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellan as Gandalf in Peter Jackson’s upcoming two-part Hobbit films, so it seems like the next characters we should be getting a look at are some of the 13 dwarfs that Bilbo accompanies on their journey. And right on time here is a picture of the first three – the dwarvish brothers Dori (Mark Hadlow), Nori (Jed Brophy) and Ori (Adam Brown).
The studio’s description of the brothers is as follows –
These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other.
Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins.
Nobody quite knows what Nori 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.
So, which dwarfs will we get to see next?
