A first look at the dwarves from The Hobbit

Jul. 7, 2011by: Mike Sampson

If you've been reading the site long enough, you know that I'm not much of a LORD OF THE RINGS fanboy. More power to you Tolkeinites, it's just not in my DNA. So I'll just trust that this first pic of the dwarves - Nori, Ori and Dori - from THE HOBBIT is kind of a big deal.

The photo was posted on the HOBBIT Facebook page and includes this description:

"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 hes not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. No-body quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that its 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 actors in the photo are, from left to right, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown and Mark Hadlow. Will we see more from THE HOBBIT as Comic-Con approaches? Stay tuned...

That's actually quite an awesome piccy. I love the diverse styles of each dwarf, making each one look quite unique. I was worried that would all just be bearded shorties that look the same, but they look great.

Looks good, I was expecting a bunch of identical Gimli clones for some reason...

I Like!!!!!

(and yes, I know what they say about people who use five exclamation marks!). I'm already pumped for these films, but I really like the fact that PJ is giving these characters more depth than Tolkien ever did; I thought this trio could have been yanked from The Hobbit without disturbing the narrative.

According to Terry Pratchett, five exclamation marks is a sure sign that you're wearing your underpants on your head. And yes TYPING LIKE THIS IS REALLY F$#%&*!G ANNOYING!!!!!

Outlandish!

Great look, nice defined faces. Unlike Gimli's muddy mug. Very cool clothes. Weta should open a store, Middle Earth clothing&apparel.

After they wrap filming on The Hobbit they could segue right into filming the World of Warcraft movie and save big time on the costumes.

If they touched this picture up any more, I'd start to think they were doing the dwarves in CG. Cuttin' it a bit close to the uncanny valley, Mr. photoshop-happy Art Designer.

Well...

Not what I expected from these characters, but OK for now. I'm not really thrilled w/Nori's star shaped haircut myself. Other than that, I can live with this. I need some more older, dwarves w/white or silver beards though.

Dwarfwood

I think these little dudes look amazing!
ps. Why have Sampson, a known Rings yawner, write anything pertaining to these epic movies... kinda takes the wind out of your sails by starting a column stating that you aren't into a genre beloved by millions of fanboys. Doesn't Joblo have anyone who is excited by PJ's masterpieces?

If you're not digging the way these dwarves look (for whatever reason), try to imagine them as they venture through the Misty Mountains or in the black forest of Mirkwood, instead of standing in front of a nondescript grey backdrop.
