The Hobbit – First-Look Photos

Three photos of Peter Jackson‘s latest project The Hobbit were released today.

The sneak-preview images reveal Martin Freeman as a young Bilbo Baggins, the story’s protagonist, whose character was portrayed by Ian Holm in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  If these shots are anything to go by, it seems safe to assume that Freeman will make a convincing hobbit hero. “He fits the ears, and he’s got some very nice feet,” Jackson commented. “I think he’s got the biggest hobbit feet we’ve had so far.” Additionally, Lord of the Rings fans will be delighted to see Sir Ian McKellen return to his role as Gandalf the wizard.
















The photos and director’s comments can be seen here on Entertainment Weekly‘s website.
