Final Hobbit Movie Gets Official Title

The final movie of the Hobbit trilogy has an official name to go with it.  Peter Jackson confirmed that the movie will no longer be called The Hobbit: There and Back Again.  The new title for the last installment of the franchise will be known as The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

After the announcement on Facebook , Jackson was quoted as saying; Our journey to make The Hobbit Trilogy has been in some ways like Bilbo's own, with hidden paths revealing their secrets to us as we've gone along. “There and Back Again” felt like the right name for the second of a two film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo’s arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film. But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced—after all, Bilbo has already arrived “there” in the "Desolation of Smaug".

The idea to change the title first came up during the premier of Desolation of Smaug.  After discussions with the studio, Jackson decided to wait until he was in the editing room to get a clear perspective on what the title should be moving forward.  Once they viewed the movie last week during editing, Jackson and the other producers felt the new title better illustrated the conclusion to the Hobbit trilogy.

Jackson did mention that the title "There and Back Again" would more than likely be used as the box trilogy name once it is released to the public.  He mentioned that before any of that comes to light, the extended version of The Desolation of Smaug would contain 25 minutes of extra footage, and a new musical score produced by Howard Shore.

"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" is scheduled to open in theaters at the end of the year on Dec. 17, 2014.
