The hopefully epic conclusion to Peter Jackson’s overwhelmingly epic middle earth based Hobbit trilogy is almost upon us, but not before it gets a little title change. It will now be known as The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies. Academy award winner, and noted Kiwi, Peter Jackson took to his Facebook page earlier today to make the announcement official. How 21st century of him. Jackson said on his wall:
The third installment for all branding, merchandising, marketing and publicity purposes was The Hobbit: There And Back Again. After titles like The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, something like There And Back Again seemed like both a no-brainer and a snug fit. There was rumor around mid-April that the title had changed to The Hobbit: Into The Fire, which made sense given the set up presented at the end of the second film. This came from when New Line reportedly also registered the now confirmed title and the now false title. Jackson hints though that the still registered original title could be used for any number of things including the impending Blu-ray/DVD/Digital download combo set with more bonuses than any viewer will know what to do with. What do you think? Is Five Armies too much of a mouthful? Was There And Back Again good enough? Is your favorite actually Into The Fire? Let us know by voting in the poll below! [yop_poll id="20"]
