Two Hobbit films, one journey
More news from Guillermo del Toro on The Hobbit and it's sequel. Except it's no longer a sequel as such, he says the two films will be one story continued.
I'm still intrigued as to what the content of the second film will be, del Toro obviously has his plans though.
Guillermo del Toro has been talking about the two Hobbit films, and says the team is no longer thinking of them as two separate films. He told MTV Movies Blog, what he, Peter Jackson and the rest of the team were thinking.
The reality is that we stopped talking the first movie and second movie, and we just started taking about the movie - the two episodes, or two parts, as if they were a single piece of narrative. We don’t even call it the bridge movie, we just call it ‘The Movie.’ And this is great. When we found what reverberated, and we found it in one of our virtual meetings - we understood. It’s a movie.
From what I know, they have their work cut out filling in the time before The Fellowship of the Ring. del Toro though, says that they are aiming to complete the full circle.
We all agree that if we do our job right, it should all feel like a continuous journey. That’s what we’re striving for. You should see a movie that’s five pictures long. If we do our job right, you put in ‘The Hobbit’ and you wind up watching the entire Pentology!
We can all now await the cinema specials where they play all five one after the other, in chronological order. Wonder how long that would take? Any avid fans of the novel out there? How do you want the two films to pan out?
