First official pics from The Hobbit debut

Jun. 23, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Well I'm legitimately starting to get excited for THE HOBBIT now, and though it's just in its early stages, they're doing a good job of trickling out information to keep stringing us along until the premiere, which is still exceptionally far away.

I really appreciated the Peter Jackson walkthrough of the first day of production we saw a while ago, and today we have our first official pics from the film via Entertainment Weekly.

They show Martin Freeman as Bilbo and Ian McKellen back in full Gandalf gear. Nothing too revolutionary, but it's a start, and I'm sure there will be loads more to come in the coming year.

Extra Tidbit: I want to see Evangeline Lily in full elf attire. Mm mm.

Nice!

Really liking the look of things. If I were to guess, I think that dwarf in the center is Thorin.

Awesome!

The more Hobbit information I can see or read about the better. I can't wait to see a snippet of the film and hope we see that in the theaters this Christmas.

More please?!

They do! In fact, I believe Martin Freeman said his feet would be the biggest of the hobbits. He wasn't kidding.

Nice to see it rolling along. Can't wait for this. It's just too bad that we won't get to see Smaug until the second film. Martin Freeman is gonna be great in this role.

Only thing, are the dwarves all dressed in black? They're supposed to be kind of grim but not some kind of goths. Seems like the faces are good, not like Gimli who's face looked a bit like lumpy gravy.

Even McKellen likes the Grey one better, he's much more approachable and fun. The White one is aloof and otherworldly.
