Sing "Misty Mountains" with the dwarves!

Just in time for Christmas 2011, Sir Peter Jackson released the long-awaited trailer of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first of two Hobbit movies, coming to your neighborhood movie theater next Christmas.
Now, here’s a post-Christmas treat: A remix of the song sung by the dwarves in the trailer, the haunting “Misty Mountains.”

The Dwarves Unveiled

Since I named this blog “Fellowship of the Minds” and took “Eowyn” as my nom de plume, it’s no surprise that I’m a HUGE J.R.R. Tolkien geek.

If you’re also a fan, you’d know that Sir Peter Jackson, who directed and produced (and co-wrote the script) the Lord of the Rings trilogy, is in the process of making The Hobbit — two movies based on the book that Tolkien wrote before the Rings trilogy.

In the course of the past few weeks, Jackson’s been releasing photos of the dwarves, by bits and pieces. Today, he released the pic of the last dwarf — that of Thorin, dwarf king and leader of the expedition to reclaim the treasures stolen by the evil dragon Smaug.

Thorin is magnificent !!!

Here’s a pic of Thorin and the other dwarves lined up behind him.

From left to right:

Bofur, Bifur, Nori, Ori, Dori, Balin, Thorin (in foreground), Dwalin, Oin, Gloin (father of Gimli in Lord of the Rings), Fili, Kili

You can read descriptions of each dwarf on TheOneRing.net.
