Hey Tolkein and Hobbit fans! We got some interesting news for you regarding the final chapter in The Hobbit Trilogy. When The Hobbit was initially shot to become two films, the final film’s title was There & Back Again. When Director Peter Jackson decided to expand the story into a trilogy, he dubbed the second film as The Desolation of Smaug. But it just might seem like New Line Cinema has registered the third film to be titled The Hobbit: Into The Fire. The website TheOneRing.net issued the news that New Line was changing the title for the final installment. This story becomes even more credible because TheOneRing.net was the website that broke the news that the untitled second film at the time was going to be called The Desolation of Smaug. If you’re wondering how “Into the Fire” ties into the Tolkein books, it’s a reference to a chapter title from The Hobbit and was also spoken in Jackson’s film adaptation with the line, “Out of the frying pan, and into the fire.” Since the third Hobbit film will comprise of the massive Battle of Five Armies, it seems a quite fitting moniker—if not as elegant for a concluding chapter as There and Back Again. This title change has not yet been confirmed, but through the credible source of TheOneRing.net, it is very likely to be true. If this is the case or not, we should hear an announcement for Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema really soon. Regardless of what the film is titled we are all excited for it’s release on December 17, 2014!
