The title The Hobbit: There and Back Again has been around for three years, back when the plan was for there to be just two Hobbit movies. However, Peter Jackson announced this morning that it is gone and in its stead the final film will be called The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Jackson rightfully points out that the original title didn't make sense after the series was broken into three movies, "after all, Bilbo has already arrived 'there' in the Desolation of Smaug." There and Back Again, which is the subtitle of the book, "encompasses Bilbo’s entire adventure," according to Jackson, "so don’t be surprised if you see it used on a future box-set of all three movies." Thanks for warning us, Jax, didn't want to disrupt our Hobbit-like life devoid of anything unexpected or surprising.
