1st look at Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins: and look! The Dwarves too!

There it is! Our first official look at Martin Freeman as a young Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's upcoming The Hobbit 2-part film.

We're also getting our very first glimpse at the dwarves accompanying Bilbo on his journey (or rather, it's Bilbo who's actually accompanying the dwarves on their journey, thanks to Gandalf), with a direct view at Richard Armitage (Spooks) as Thorin Oakenshield (I wonder where Being Human's Aidan Turner is in there... hmmmm).

I have to say the dwarves are not as colorful as they're described in J.R.R Tolkien's book, but that's more in keeping with the look of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

And Freeman does look wonderful as Bilbo, doesn't he?
