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.
