Peter Jackson has admitted that he was hesitant to take on a serious task of converting The Hobbit into a film trilogy, owing to the sheer complexities of bringing 13 different dwarves to life.
Jackson wanted each dwarf to be distinguished by their appearances, their hairstyles, and their skill of choice. Thus, he created each dwarf with their own personal specifications in mind. While going into such a dense trilogy and keeping track of 13 dwarves may seem like a tall order, there are solutions to it. Bilbo''s journey is centered on the greatness of his fellow performers.
Thorin, Fili, and Kili, who are engaged in the Ravenhill raid, were among the three most easy to distinguish because they are the three in the direct royal line from Durin, and the three that are targeted in the series. Thorin, the book, though, was the subject of his entire expedition, and he was given a short beard in the films as a singed beard, which was a pity to all of the dwarves who died in Erebor.
Thorin is the one who seeks to return to the kingdom, and his entire self-confidence was built on this stubborn, loyal and generous belief. Fili and Kili are the youngest members of the team, and at the core, they are the same, caring, loyal characters.
Fili is next in line for the throne following Thorin, and he is bearing the weight of this responsibility. Kili is most well known as the dwarf who is envious of Tauriel, the she-elf. His concept was based heavily on Aiden Turner, and he had the least prosthetics of any od the dwarves, as the team wanted his face to be kept as unobscured as possible. His other distinguishing feature is that his weapon of choice is
Dwalin is Thorins'' right-hand man, his most loyal counterpart, and his most well-trained soldier.. His famous technique is a bald head, with a scar across one eyebrow. His entire appearance is fierce and tough, and he is clothed in clothing with a fur collar, which is trimmed in sharp angles to make him feel wolflike. He is also tattooed in tattoos and markings across his body that depict the fate of the dwarven race and his
The biggest challenge with this was reducing the appearance of Santa, and thus they had to keep his technique strict. To do this, they put flicks in his beard, which match the theme across his costume, including the flicks on his shoes. Balin is the philosopher, the educator, and the one who later died in the Moria tombs.
Gloin has the same hair and bushy beard as Gimli, which would be later removed. He is the banker of the organization, caring for their finances, and he likes his son! He also enjoys being a potions teacher, studying herb lore, and being able to understand signs and omens. He is perhaps most recognized by the golden tube he has in his ear, to assist his hearing.
Dori, Nori, and Ori are among the more distantly related warriors in Thorin and Fili. Dori is often mocked as the fussiest of the bunch. He is particularly prim and proper, dressed in mauves and purples to signify his royal blood, and the look chosen for his beard is quite intricate, as if he had spent years preening it. He is surprisingly family-oriented, and acts as a mother-hen to Ori who is far older.
Nori, who wears a three-pointed starfish hair, has another unusually versatile style. Their eyebrows were carefully included for his wig, which is long enough to be fixed up into his hair. As such, the team was aware of his potential success, and he is also a great horse-rider.
Ori is the youngest of these three people, and his whole design reflects this. He is dressed in lavenders and pastel colors, and his clothes are knitted, to give the other dwarves the feeling that they want to mother him. Even his weapon of choice is superbly innocent and child-like, being a slingshot, and he is the shy, gentle man who is seen throughout the films writing in his journal. When the fellowship discovers the graves in Moria, Ori is the
The last three are the most elegant of the crew, with the least connection to the royal line, they are the blacksmiths, the miners, and the groundsmen. Fran Walsh explains how the plebs were described as wearing many harsh, brown, and green earthy outfits, including thick, coarse and thick materials.
Bifur is the only character in the group who cannot speak in the common tongue; he is dependent entirely on his dwarvish appearances, thanks to the orc axe that is buried in his skull. It made him extremely berserk, volatile and violent. He is also a toymaker, who also manifests a beautiful gentle nature and a love of children.
Bofur is a funny character with a strong sense of Irish humor and a silly hat that points out at the end, as well as a perfect grasp of unusual timing in any situation. He is also the musical one, with a beautiful Irish singing voice, and he plays the flute. He is the one who strives to keep the others optimistic and gives us some astonishing deep and sensitive advice when it comes to.
Bombur, a round and rotund character, was designed in circles with a beard shaped like a donut, and he has the most prosthetics, and the most layers to his body suit, giving him a full lower face prosthetic to make his kneck sack larger like a double chin. Unsurprisingly, as the cook of the team, Bombur is an avid cook.
