It's titled "Durin's Folk: Creating the Dwarves", and concept artist John Howe says it's incredible:

I honestly believe that Peter is going to do for dwarves what Tolkien did for elves, removing what nursery rhyme and folktale has done, which is to diminish them.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition Blu-ray will hit stores on November 5.
