Gimli is one of the nine (later eight) main protagonists of the 2001-03 film series, The Lord of the Rings.

The Desolation of Smaug Edit

Gimli appears in a portrait (along with his mother) that his father carried on the way to Moria. When Legolas took the locket from Glóin, Legolas asked who that was and implied the woman to be Glóin's brother. The dwarf gets angry that the elf insults his wife and mistakes her for Óin. Then, Legolas comes across a photo of a young dwarf, and asks Glóin who that is supposed to be, calling him a goblin mutant. Glóin responds that boy is his son, Gimli, with Legolas giving him a skeptical look.
