THE HOBBIT: First Look At Lee Pace as King Thranduil, Father of Legolas

Thanks to one of the children's books for the Peter Jackson-directed prequel The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, we now have a first look at Lee Pace as King Thranduil. Hit the jump to check it out!

The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever…Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

Not gonna lie, those brows kind of detract from the rest of his appearance...

She's hot

The eyebrows don't bother me nearly as much as the weird crown-thing on his head. I'm pretty sure they could have done a better job of having a crown made of leaves or whatever that's supposed to be.

Also, this was already posted. But whatevs. It gives us another chance to talk about it.

Lookin cool.
JerBear - 9/7/2012, 5:45 PM
Well I think he's technically Bilbo's couson, but Frodo calls him uncle.

dudes with long hair = makes you want to punch them
Fogs - 9/7/2012, 5:54 PM
Old news. And I remember questioning the cousin thing on the 1st post. But he's Frodo's older cousin indeed
Fogs - 9/7/2012, 5:55 PM
@BossWalsh - why's that?
Super12 - 9/7/2012, 6:03 PM
Yep, seen it. And I think Bilbo and Frodo are second cousins technically.
ComfortablyNumb - 9/7/2012, 6:10 PM
I'm kinda surprised they kept the crown. That's a pretty close match to Tolkiens description.

They are immortal, why shouldn't they?

I was expecting the Mirkwood elves to be a little less effeminate than the Lothlorien elves.

Amazing casting and costume design (as expected).
