Peter Jackson Confirms New Title for The Hobbit 3 - Plus News on Extended Cuts and More
Peter Jackson speaks

A little while ago, a rumour surfaced that The Hobbit: There And Back Again might be getting a new name. Specifically, Warner Bros seemed to be registering domains with titles suggesting The Battle of Five Armies might be the new name for the film.

Now director Peter Jackson has taken to Facebook to confirm this news, as well as a few other prime pieces of info.

He begins by talking about the rationale of the change - basically by saying that the original title doesn't make as much sense now and they were waiting to watch an early cut of the third film to make a final decision. "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."

He also drops even more info, like the possibility of the 'There and Back Again' tag maybe being used for the eventual box set of all three films. And he also mentions that work continues on the extended cut for The Desolation of Smaug, which will have an extra 25 minutes of material and new music by Howard Shore.

That's a lot of info to digest in one quick update - read his original words here.

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies is in cinemas from the 12th of December 2014.
