Hmmm [In reply to] Can't Post

I feel like I remember seeing an interview clip of him where he compared his experience on the Hobbit to getting a divorce, which made him never want to think about it.

I know it was from the Lindsay Ellis YouTube videos– wouldn't know where the original source is.

I've seen that video you are talking about.. [In reply to] Can't Post

But I stumbled upon this "I will be first in line to see the finished product". So he changed his mind obviously.His thoughts would be interesting. And to know more about what he had planned. He worked on it for a few years!

He definitely changed his mind [In reply to] Can't Post

But before I know what the dates are, it's hard to say if the narrative is "I said this for publicity and my heart hardened because I didn't want to leave the project" or "I feel bad about leaving this project but in a lil while I'll definitely want to see what PJ and co come up with!"

That's what GDT said about The Hobbit in 2015... [In reply to] Can't Post

It starts at 7:55 Min
“No, I didn’t see them [‘The Hobbit’ films], because I knew someone would ask me this,” explains Del Toro in our exclusive interview below.
“And there’s no possible great answer because I’m not objective. I’m the only person in the world that is not objective because I worked on them for so long. So I made the very Solomonic decision [that] I won’t see them, so that nobody can ask me if I like them or not.”https://tom-i-butler.tumblr.com/...ver-watch-the-hobbit
