New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. has released a new image from Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This image gives us our first look at the dwarves Nori, Ori and Dori, played by Jed Brophy, Adam Brown and Mark Hadlow.
Is it me, or does design/vibe coming off a little different from LOTR? Eh, I guess if you think about it, the films focused primarily on Hobbits, Elves, and Men. Gimli was the only dwarf hanging around. The Hobbit will undoubtedly explore the veritable dwarvish culture. Regardless, I’m gleefully clapping. The characters look great and I’m just so I’m extremely excited to finally see this story come to life.
Here’s a description of the characters provided by Warner Bros:
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.
The first Hobbit film opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on December 14th 2012.
