We’ve briefly seen Elijah Wood reprising his role as Frodo Baggins in the first trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but up until now, we haven’t really seen him up close in any images from the film. In a new batch of images from Cinemarcado, we finally get just that, along with some other great photos of Gandalf (Ian McKellen), as well as young Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman).
It really is amazing to see just how little Elijah Wood seems to have aged since we last saw him play Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King back in 2003. He really looks almost exactly like he did in that film, which will make his return to the role all the more believable in the bookend scenes he has with old Bilbo (Ian Holm) in the films. Hit the jump to check out the photos!
