Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first official image of Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit.
If you click through that link to the gallery on their site, there’s also a new picture of Gandalf as well as one of Peter Jackson directing Freeman. Each one has a comment from Jackson about the image, and this is what he had to say about the Bilbo pic:
”He fits the ears, and he’s got some very nice feet,” Jackson says of his Bilbo. ”I think he’s got the biggest hobbit feet we’ve had so far. They’re a little bit hard to walk in, but he’s managed to figure out the perfect hobbit gait.”
Finally seeing real stills from The Hobbit just increases my hype for the movies. December 2012 seems so far away.
