13 “Hobbit” Dwarves All In A Row

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.

Meanwhile the latest issue of Empire Magazine has hit the stands and two brief tidbits of information emerged (via The Playlist).

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”.
