In a recent MTV interview filmmaker Guillermo del Toro explains that The Hobbit film is not two separate films, rather one continuous story told in two parts.

“The reality is that we stopped talking the first movie and second movie, and we just started taking about the movie – the two episodes, or two parts, as if they were a single piece of narrative.” Guillermo del Toro goes on to say, ““We don’t even call it the bridge movie, we just call it ‘The Movie.’ And this is great. When we found what reverberated, and we found it in one of our virtual meetings – we understood. It’s a movie.”

In the interview he says the film will be one “continuous journey” leading right up to the beginning of The Fellowship of The Ring. He states, “You should see a movie that’s five pictures long.”

The Hobbit has an expected release date of December 2011.
