April 25! Serendipitous indeed! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm writing from Jakarta, Indonesia and it IS the morning of April 25 here when I read the happy news at TORn (and trust me, I've checked this site everyday for updates!).

And a few days ago I also began re-reading "The Hobbit" in anticipation and I was pleasantly surprised that I've started my 'journey' back to Middle Earth at about the same time Bilbo did when he ran out of Bag End, and down the lane without a hat and walking stick... Smile

This is going to be good....YAYY! Cool

Congratulations! [In reply to] Can't Post

Welcome Mr. Del Toro!
Very happy that you were chosen to bring us all back to Middle-earth, a place we've all missed very much in the last few years.
Hope to hear updates from you throughout the process!

I'll give you an answer-

I must say you guys solved my, perhaps, ill-conceived riddle quite fast (I'm ashamed, actually) and got the date and times right. Nevertheless, the powers of red tape extended the process for hours and days longer.

But now its all done-

I'm confirmed and signed as the HOBBIT (SES) and I hope to join your community form this day forth-

Now I''ll go and have a second breakfast to celebrate!

So I get to come home from the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra's performance live to FotR (absolutely thrilling, report to follow) to this news!!! Oh frabjous day!!! Wow, I'm gonna be wired for a while now *jumps up and sown*.

Welcome again GDT, this is going to be soooo exciting, and I'm glad to have you at the helm.

Thank you, Mr. Del Toro! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you so much for taking the time to join our little community! You are most certainly welcome, your enthusiasm is shared and greatly appreciated!

We look forward to the awesome ride ahead of us all. The cast of Lord of the Rings said the experience, as well as living in New Zealand, changed their lives (for the better), and I hope such is the case for you as well!

In the words of Frodo:
"Elen síla lúmenn' omentielvo: a star shines on the hour of our meeting"

One thing I ask: please let us see the White Council, with Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Christopher Lee as Saruman, Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, and Hugo Weaving as Elrond. Perhaps Radagast as well?

Anyway, Welcome, friend! Wink

I think this series need some fresh pairs of eyes, and hopefully Mr. Del Toro will be able to bring something new and fresh to "The Hobbit". A better director couldn't be found.

I'm crossing my fingers for Production Diaries like PJ did with King Kong.

My first impression of GDT... [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember seeing you on some horror special where they interview a bunch of directors. Never having heard of you before, and really connecting, because you act like such a kid who loves what he does. Much like PJ. I can't wait to see what you do with this franchise!

That was fun! [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, it was!
I thought that was charming that you wanted to tease us with a riddle that included part of the "Riddles In the Dark" chapter from "The Hobbit"! Believing it to be a good sign, I guessed that you must have good news for us if you felt like being so playful! I like guessing correctly!
Because I trust PJ, who gave us such an endearing and enduring interpretation of LOTR, and because he respects and admires your work very much, I trust you too.
I thought "Pan's Labyrinth" was powerfully emotional, well done, and disturbing. I'm looking forward very much to seeing how you deal with both "The Hobbit" and "The Segue" (for lack of a better title.)
My congratulations and best wishes to you!
May you do the professor and his stories proud!
Thanks,

Mae Govannen Guillermo! [In reply to] Can't Post

Well this is very good news! It is wonderful to see you in this board and it was fantastic to hear you have been reading all of Tolkien's books. I tend to be jeaulous of people who can enter Middle-earth for the very first time... I hope you enjoy every minute of it.
If you don't have the very interesting "The History of the Hobbit" set yet, please do sent me an email and I'll sent you a set along. It might proof to be very useful on the road...

I'm very happy that one of the best Children books out there will be turned into a movie by someone who understands and loves 'faerie'. I'm already looking forward to see the tale come alive on the big screen and wished I had an opportunity to contribute to the project. I'm now reading the Hobbit for about 24 years and must have been in an out the tale for over 300 times. I must admit I'll be scared to go to see the movie, and every little aspect will have a huge impact on me personally, yet now I know that the project is in your hands I am comforted and feel a great joy! Thank you Guillermo and enjoy the ride!

WooHoo!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Welcome to the family Mr. Del Toro... make yourself at home. Now how would like some tea? Or maybe something a little stronger? Wine? Ale? Let's see... what've we got? Hmmm... there's cold chicken, and a bit of pickle. And some cheese. Oh no, that won't do. Well, well, here's some raspberry jam, and an apple tart... But there's not much for afters. Oh, we're all right after all... just found some sponge cake Blush

Relax and take a deep breath Sir...

The plunge is long
The day will dawn
When you must away
'ere break of day
To NZ with PJ, Fran, Philippa and all
There to heed Middle-earth's call.
