When I first saw the promo shots for all the dwarves, I kind of had mixed feelings about them. Bear in mind, I grew up with the Rankin-Bass version of the movies, so when I saw a lack of gray among the hair and beards, I was sort of lost. Thorin, especially, had me surprised -- being younger than I first knew him. But after seeing the trailer and seeing them all introduced...I squeed like I have never squeed before! This just drives it all home for me...!
The response of my husband and I to this went something like:
Husband: "That...is some dwarves." Me: "yyyyup." Husband: "Wow, uh... They don't look too happy being all Christmas'd." Me: "HEY MAN. They ARE happy. That is what Dwarf happy-faces look like. They are SOOO Happy right now."
