Another set of dwarves from
have been revealed online thanks to a new official shot from the currently-shooting book adap.
This latest snap gives us our first glimpse of Bofur (James Nesbitt), Bombur (Stephen Hunter), and Bifur (William Kircher).

Their participation in the quest for the Lonely Mountain mostly hinges on the promise of free beer and great treasure.
