With Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit Part 1 – An Unexpected Journey” set to start journeyin’ in a few months time (that would be December 19, 2012 to be exact), the studio has started releasing new promotional images from the film. Check out the latest batch, featuring some character portraits and scenes from the movie, below, won’t you?

“The Hobbit” follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever… Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

Starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter, Rob Kazinsky, Aidan Turner, Peter Hambleton, John Callen, Jed Brophy, Mark Hadlow, Adam Brown, Cate Blanchett, Andy Serkis, Elijah Wood, Jeffrey Thomas, Mike Mizrahi, and Evangeline Lilly.

    Thorin looks so Badass!!! I so can’t wait for this.As muchas I love the LoTR trilogy, it was hamprered by the “end of the world/edge of war” vibe. This is more of a good old fashioned fantasy adventure!

    i still am a bit bothered about the fact that these dwarfs don’t really look dwarf-like…

      What, cause they don’t all have long beards? I actually applaud them for not gving us a bunch of Gimli clones. That was my biggest worry actually. I mean if you look at the council scene in Fellowship, all the dwarves looked alike.

        they look alike right now as well imo…

        it might just be me but when i was reading the hobbit i imagined all the dwarfs as a bit fat and small in height with a beard indeed… i thought “all” dwarfs looked like that :P
