The third and final installment of The Hobbit film trilogy titled There and Back Again has just been retitled by writer Peter Jackson. This morning, Jackson revealed on this Facebook page that he has changing the name to The Battle of the Five Armies. The writer said the film’s previous title was misplaced and didn’t fit well with the trilogy. The new title not only fits better with the storyline, but also causes a sense of urgency.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is slated for a Dec. 17, 2014 release. You can see Jackson’s full explanation below.
