This is a big year for little people. You’ve got The Hobbit. You’ve got two separate versions of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, one of them created for people who like Lord of the Rings and the other one created for people who like the phrase “Snow Way.” You’ve got Life’s Too Short, a show about VIP little person Warwick Davis, which will almost certainly lead to a big Netflix bump for Willow. (Not to mention the impending return of Game of Thrones, featuring Tyrion “Bad Motherf—er” Lannister.) Anyhow, a new image from The Hobbit seems to indicate that the dwarves of Middle Earth would beat all the others in a fight, if the fight was just about who can grow the biggest beard. Game on, McShane.
