Elijah Wood Says The Hobbit Is "Going To Feel Very Familiar, And Different As Well" Can't Post

ComingSoon.net has an exclusive interview with Elijah Wood who's going to be reprising his character of Frodo Baggins in The Hobbit films.

Here follows an excerpt from the interview (but make sure to head over to ComingSoon.net to read it in its entirety):
CS: What are you most excited about to have the opportunity to be a part of the prequels? Since it wasn't necessarily built into the original novel that you guys from the "Rings" films would be there.

Wood: Yeah, not at all. Look, I'm just looking forward to going back to New Zealand and spending a bit of time there. There will be plenty of old friends that will be a part of it. Largely I would imagine the entire crew would be relatively the same. So in some ways I think it's going to be a very surreal journey. It will feel like traveling back in time a little.

But I'm excited. There's a lot of new elements to this. They're shooting on the Red [camera]. They're shooting in 3D, so that should be interesting.

And I'm excited to read the script. I'm very excited to see what they've done with "The Hobbit." They've stretched it out over the course of two films – I'm so curious as to what other elements they've woven in, because there are certainly additional works that refer to that same time period that they could weave into it. So I'm just very excited to sort of see what the ultimate vision is.

I was down there about a year ago, February, and I saw some of the design. This is when Guillermo [del Toro] was still attached. So I've seen a lot of the design work. I mean, it's extraordinary! And Alan Lee and John Howe are back in the art department doing designs for it. I think it's going to feel very familiar, and different as well.

How shallow was this pice of news? Crazy

I mean, when I read the title I thought he at least had seen the script!

He says Guillermo's design work is 'extraordinary'. [In reply to] Can't Post

Good to know, I guess. 'Very familiar, and different as well'... not very informative. I kind of wish he'd pick one or the other so we'd have something to go on.

Howe and Lee? [In reply to] Can't Post

This is the first I've heard in quite some time about Howe and Lee being involved in the Hobbit. Have they traveled to NZ, or are they consulting? Does anyone know?

They've been working on The Hobbit for a couple of years now. // [In reply to] Can't Post

Linky Please [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, I've seen several posts of folks making similar claims. Is there any actual evidence to this effect? The best so far that I've seen is Elija's offhand comment here. I haven't found anything from the artists, PJ, or Weta folks. Any links?

Lee and Howe have stuck with Weta, respectively working on King Kong and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
