Peter Jackson‘s production of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has released a slue of character stills and we’re happy to bring them to you. There are more characters than you can shake a stick at in this movie so I imagine that next year’s convention trivia contests will have you name each of the dwarfs.

Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Thorin Oakenshield, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori, and Ori.

Try saying that five times fast . . . standing on one foot . . . patting your head . . . and spinning in place. I find that it helps if you say the names to the tune of Three Blind Mice . . .
Fili, Kili, Oin.
Gloin, Thorin, Dwalin.
That’s makes six, only seven to go.
Balin, Bifur, Bofur, and old Bombur.
That’s four down, only three to go.
Dori, Nori, Ori.

After the gallery there is a semi spoiler-ish wrap around picture that some have said would spoil the cutoff of the first film’s ending. If you’ve read the books then there’s not much of anything that could spoil the plot, but just in case you don’t want to know . . . don’t look.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in theaters on December 14th, 2012.
