Smaug is a gold hoarding dragon that thirteen dwarves, one hobbit, and a wise old wizard set out to conquer in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. If you're having trouble keep their names straight, Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema has released a new character scroll, so that you become quite well acquainted with this odd lot before setting off with them on an adventure of a lifetime this December. Of course you know Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and Bilbo (Martin Freeman), but can you keep these guys straight: Thorin, Gloin, Oin, Balin, Dwalin, Bofur, Bifur, Kili, Fili, Dori, Nori, Ori, and Bombur? (Click on the scroll for a larger look at this motley crew.)
