Guillermo del Toro, in 2006:
I was never into heroic fantasy. At all. I don't like little guys and dragons, hairy feet, hobbits -- I've never been into that at all. I don't like sword and sorcery, I hate all that stuff."
Guillermo del Toro, in 2008:
"Contributing to the 'Lord of the Rings' legacy is an absolute dream come true."
Oh, man, I hope this isn't a disaster. Especially the 'sequel.'
