An official composite photo of the entire company of dwarves and Thorin Oakshield together from Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” has been released by Warners – in the process giving us a look at more details of Richard Armitage’s Thorin costume as the shot used for it is a new one. Click below to check out the high-resolution version.
Jackson confirmed “The Hobbit” will be more comical than “The Lord Of The Rings” films – “We are being more humorous than ‘Lord Of The Rings,’ but that is the characters. I’m dealing with a whole bunch of extenuate and forthright dwarves who are not afraid to say what they think. They have a healthy disregard for the icons of Middle Earth”.
Jackson also says the dwarves are quite different to what we’ve seen in the ‘Rings’ films – “They don’t know what to make of Gandalf, they think Bilbo is a wuss, and Elrond a prissy headmaster type”.
