3D Hobbit? Not so according to director Guillermo del Toro. Rumors have been flying that del Toro was planning to take Tolkien’s classic and turn it into a 3D Hobbit Experience.

A poll among “Hobbit” fans at produced a definite thumbs down to the 3D idea that was circulating. The posts in their forum are overwhelmingly opposed to the idea. 74% voted against the The Hobbit in 3D.

The website then asked the director if there were any truth to the rumors they were hearing about The Hobbit films in 3D. Here’s his reply:

“I can safely say that, as of this moment, there are absolutely NO conversations about doing the HOBBIT films in 3D.”

Now, I would say this should end the speculation except for one little detail about del Toro’s response. He said “as of this moment” which of course could unintentionally keep the speculation open for what could happen at a later moment. The response might turn down the heat on the rumor, but those four words could leave little embers still burning.

The first film is scheduled for release in 2011.

What do you Hobbit fans think? To 3D or not 3D?  That is the question!
