New Pictures Of The Hobbit
Gandalf wields the mighty Glamdring

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit gets a public unveiling at Comic-Con this month. Ahead of the shindig, EW has revealed new shots of Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and dwarves Fili, Kili, Dori and Nori, among others, embarking on their epic quest across Middle-earth.

Troll readers be warned. The Hobbit is also an origin story for Glamdring, Foe-hammer, Gandalf's two-handed sword. Here it is in all its troll, orc and goblin smiting glory.



Interestingly, there's also glimpses of Galadriel amongst EW's pictures. She has been recruited from the pages of Lord Of The Rings and encorporated into The Hobbit's storyline. Any excuse to watch Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving as Elrond is alright by us, so Jackson's promise that "it will all make sense" should keep purists at bay.

 

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey reaches our screens on Boxing Day. We're booking in to the Mirkwood IMAX now.

A purist...
Elrond was always in the Hobbit. Galadriel isn't but I'm sure Peter Jackson will have thought of something. More
