As has become tradition, Entertainment Weekly will be releasing a special San Diego Comic Con edition of their publication this week. Past issues have included first looks at films such as Watchmen and Iron Man 2, but this year, we return to Middle-Earth, as Entertainment Weekly brings a first look at The Hobbit.
A series of 10 images from the film have been released on EW.com, and I’ve got them for you. You get a great look at Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, many returning Lord of the Rings cast members (both real and virtual), and yes, dwarves. Many, many dwarves.
All and all, it should be enough to get even the most hardened geek excited. I know they sure worked on me, and hopefully they will for you too. Check out the gallery below.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters on December 14th, 2012.
