The Hobbit has officially taken over the Internet. Every day something new and awesome is released from the set of the movie, and we've got the latest—the first official photo of the dwarves Fili and Kili.

Fili is played by New Zealand native Dean O'Gorman, and Irish actor Aidan Turner plays Kili. In Hobbit lore, their characters are the youngest dwarves born into the Durin royal line. They're the nephews of Thorin Oakenshield, and even though they're inexperienced at life, they know their way around a sword.

We have to admit, they're some pretty good-looking dwarves. Their costumes look great, and their weapons are fierce. We can't wait to see these guys in action. Their journey will be an interesting one to follow.

Over the past few days, we've already seen our fair share of Hobbit characters. Fili and Kili can now join Dori, Nori and Ori, as well as Oin and Gloin in the expanding Hobbit photo album. We wonder who they'll reveal next!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in theaters on Dec. 14, 2012.
