Final 'The Hobbit' Movie Gets A New Title

The Hobbit Finale Movie Gets Name Change

On the heels of the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on Blu-Ray and home video comes some interesting news from Peter Jackson himself. The third and final film, which was previously called "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" will now be called "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies".

Jackson wrote on his Facebook: "When we did the premiere trip late last year, I had a quiet conversation with the studio about the idea of revisiting the title. We decided to keep an open mind until a cut of the film was ready to look at. We reached that point last week, and after viewing the movie, we all agreed there is now one title that feels completely appropriate. And so: ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ it is. As Professor Tolkien intended, “There and Back Again” encompasses Bilbo’s entire adventure, so don’t be surprised if you see it used on a future box-set of all three movies."

Jackson also wrote that The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition will include over 25 minutes of new footage with new original music by Howard Shore. If you aren't aware, Peter Jackson has famously released Extended Editions of all of The Lord of the Rings films thus far.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will hit theaters December 17, 2014.
