Así lo ha confirmado hoy Peter Jackson, después de que la semana pasada surgieran los rumores del título The Hobbit: Into the Fire finalmente han optado por llamar a la tercera película "The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies"
Our journey to make The Hobbit Trilogy has been in some ways like
Bilbo's own, with hidden paths revealing their secrets to us as we've
gone along. “There and Back Again” felt like the right name for the
second of a two film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when
Bilbo’s arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the
second film. But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced—after all, Bilbo has already arrived “there” in the "Desolation of Smaug".
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.
Before then however, we
have a film to finish, and much to share with you. It’s been a nice
quiet time for us—Jabez and I happily editing away in a dark cave in
Wellington—but those halcyon days are quickly coming to an end. It will
soon be time to step into the light. Expect to see and hear much about
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in the coming months.
And there’s also The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Cut,
which we’re in the process of finishing, with over 25 mins of new
scenes, all scored with original music composed by Howard Shore.
It’ll be a fun year!
