Return To The Shire With First Official ‘Hobbit’ Stills

Here are the first stills from Peter Jackson‘s currently-in-production The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and they of course look awesome. We all knew that Martin Freeman would make a convincing Hobbit but wow, he really looks the part. All it took was pointy ears and a flowy shirt. And look at him playing Army guys with Peter Jackson. What a fun set!

There’s also a new look at Ian McKellen as Gandalf. Or should I say “Sexy Gandalf”? Look at that come hither stare. Dude is ready to pose for Geriatric Romance novels. Either that or he’s trying to inconspicuously let out a fart. You shall not pass gas! (EW)
