Some new stills from the set of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug have made their way on to the net, and they're well worth a peek. Like An Unexpected Journey before it, The Desolation of Smaug isn't going to be all about 's Bilbo. The dwarves, led by Thorin (), also play an important role in the plot. And while the dwarves might be physically small, they more than make up for their size with their big personalities.
I think you get that jist in this host of exciting stills. Check 'em out and see what you think:
I love the heck out of Tolkien's literature - he's the practical grandfather of the fantasy genre as we know it. I just hope that Jackson has cleared some room on his mantle for more statues.
