|Home: BigScreen Journal - View a chat transcript with Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro talking about the Hobbit movies|
The web site Weta Holics held a chat session with Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro where the executive producer and director (respectively) of the two upcoming movies based on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit (the book that came before The Lord of the Rings).
|Peter Jackson||Guillermo del Toro|
In the chat, Jackson and del Toro answered questions from fans and talked about their approach to the two "prequels" to the highly successful epic Lord of the Rings trilogy of movies.
Close to 6,000 fans asked almost 4,000 questions before the chat started and then asked another one question per second during the hour the chat was running. In other words, a total of over 7,000 questions. Several people (not least Peter and Guillermo) worked hard to sift through the questions and in the end answered 60 questions. One for every minute. We do of course regret that we didn't get to all questions, but hopefully we can have more chats in the future.
The full transcript of that chat appears in the Read link below. There is too much to repeat here, so definitely check out the site if you want to get all the great details, but here are some of the highlights:
