The last and final installment of The Hobbit now has a new title to it!
In a post made in his official Facebook page, director Peter Jackson has officially given an update on the next and final chapter of his epic Lord of The Rings prequel trilogy of "The Hobbit", announcing that the third film has now been retitled from "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" into "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies".
In his update, the director explains the title change was "appropriate", and that the title "There and Back Again" may appear in collected editions of the Hobbit Trilogy, reflecting that it sums up the entirety of Bilbo Baggins' epic journey, while "Battle of the Five Armies" fits the theme of the last installment of the prequel set of films.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will be released in theaters on December 17, 2014.
