The Hobbit: First Look At Fili, Kili, Bofur, Bombur & Bifur

Fili & Kili

Bombur, Bofur & Bifur

Here is your first look at Dean O'Gorman as Fili, Aidan Turner as Kili, Stephen Hunter as Bombur, James Nesbitt as Bofur and William Kircher as Bifur from Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.'

Fili & Kili:
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.

Bofur, Bombur & Bifur
While most of the Company of Thorin Oakensheild is related to the royal and noble line of Durin, Bofur, his brother Bombur and their cousin Bifur most definitely are … not. Born and bred in the West, descendants of coal miners and iron workers, they have joined the Quest for the Lonely Mountain partly to seek their fortune and partly because they were told the beer was free.
