Forummer Empedocles has found a video interview (divided in 12 parts) with Guillermo del Toro in Rotten Tomatoes. This particular one touches several interesting points ranging from his views on talking animals in The Hobbit, to how the power of the Ring will be shown in the movie.
Parts one through 6 are now up, the following 6 parts coming in the weekend. Part 5 of the interview seems like the one with most “new” information that concerns The Hobbit, so take a look! [Rotten Tomatoes interview index] [Interview part 5]
