All 13 dwarves (and 1 hobbit) lined up for a press conference for Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. So here they are for the first time, and on video, together: the stars of The Hobbit.

Weta held a press conference for the new Hobbit movie, and brought all of the dwarfs (and Bilbo Baggins actor Martin Freeman) together. Check out the beard on the British Being Human's Aidan Turner, who's playing Kili. We've got a whole gallery and video for you to ogle. And, if you want to listen to the entire press conference, head over to this link. Also, principal photography for The Hobbit (part 1) will begin on Monday, March 21.
