Peter Jackson has released another first look at two of the characters from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
He seems to have aparticular interest in dwarves, or maybe he is just keeping the best for the San Diego Comic Con. Anyway here is your first look at Balin (left) and Dwalin (right) as they’ll appear in The Hobbit:
And here’s the official description that goes with them, courtesy of Time.
Dwarf Lords in their own right, Balin and Dwalin are close relatives of Thorin. Beyond this, these brothers are two of his most loyal and trusted friends. An old warrior, Balin has lived through hard times and fought many battles, yet he harbors doubts about the wisdom of the Quest to retake the Lonely Mountain. Dwalin has no such forebodings – his belief in Thorin’s leadership is unshakeable. A powerful and bruising fighter, with a natural tendency to distrust anyone who is not a Dwarf, particularly anyone who might be an Elf, Dwalin is not someone to cross lightly.
