Hobbit Title Renamed to "The Battle of The Five Armies"

After talks with WB Studios and careful consideration, Director Peter Jackson has decided to rename the final Hobbit movie from its original title of "There and Back Again" to "The Battle of the Five Armies."

Jackson announced the title change of the last installment of the trilogy on his Facebook page earlier this week.  He originally was planning on reviewing the title when he was talking to studio executives in 2013 during the premier of "Desolation of Smaug," and agreed to wait until he was in the production room to view the movie before amending the original title.

"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".

Jackson felt that the title would be more appropriate for two movies instead of three.  He mentioned that in the second movie Bilbo had already arrived 'there', providing no need for the third movie to have the originally intended title.

Jackson, who also directed the Lord of the Rings trilogy, has been credited with reviving the fantasy universe that Tolkien created through his books in an interview with Hero Complex

“The great thing about the movies is that they have increased the book sales enormously,” Jackson said. “Huge numbers of people are reading Tolkien now, and I’m happy to claim some credit for that. Any of the liberties that we take in adapting, any of the changes we make, any of the things that might have upset Professor Tolkien … it’s not all take. We do give something back.”

Jackson also mentioned to fans that the title of "There and Back Again" would be used on a box-set of the movies after they have been completed.  This makes for a more fitting title to wrap up Bilbo Baggins entire journey through the course of the series in Jackson's opinion.

The premier of "The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies" is set to open on December 17th, 2014.  The last installment in the trilogy will allow fans to see the conclusion of Tolkien's universe that has been brought to life in the big screen.
