Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit will be unveiled in more detail at Comic-Con this month. But right now Entertainment Weekly has some great publicity stills and screenshots from the upcoming film. Here we see Gandalf, Bilbo, and dwarves Fill, Dill, Dori and Nori and others embarking on the original quest across Middle-earth.

Some of these promotion stills feature Martin Freeman as a young Bilbo Baggins and Sir Iam McKellan as Gandalf the Grey. Richard Armitgae is shown as the leader of the dwarves, Thoren Oakenshield, who recruit Bilbo for the adventure.

There are a couple of shots of the dwarves during their exploits. They trek through the mountains in one and another has them all inside escape barrels from a recognizable chapter in the book. There’s more of Gandalf back in Hobbiton, Bilbo in Milkwood Forest and three pictures showing the returning characters from the Lord of the Rings; Elrond (Hugo Weaving), Galadriel (Cate Blanchett), and Gollum.

So far it looks like everything is meticulously designed, just like the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The character design of the dwarves alone will make this worth seeing.
