Warner and New Line continue to roll out photos of Bilbo’s band of dwarves from “The Hobbit” two by two. The latest to be revealed showcase Fili (Dean O’Gorman) and Kili (Aidan Turner), the least dwarve looking dwarves so far.
Check out the photo in higher resolution here (you can also view previously released photos).
Two of the youngest dwarves, Fili and Kili have been born into the royal line of Durin and raised under the stern guardianship of their uncle, Thorin Oakensheild. Neither has ever travelled far, nor ever seen the fabled Dwarf City of Erebor. For both, the journey to the Lonely Mountain represents adventure and excitement. Skilled fighters, both brothers set off on their adventure armed with the invincible courage of youth, neither being able to imagine the fate which lies before them.
Aidan Turner who plays Kili is best known to British audiences for his leading role as Mitchell on BBC’s “Being Human.”
New Zealand actor Dean O’Gorman (Fili) is the newest member of the cast, after replacing ex-EastEnder’s actor Rob Kazinsky in the Fili role two and half months ago.
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” hits screens worldwide from December 14th, 2012. Part 2 of the story, “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” debuts the following year from December 13th, 2013.
Both films are set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” The adventure of “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 from the fearsome dragon Smaug.
Under Jackson’s direction, both movies are being shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest camera and stereo technology. Filming is taking place at Stone Street Studios, Wellington, and on location around New Zealand. Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
