It appears New Line are not keen on the idea of calling the two upcoming “Hobbit” movies part 1 and part 2. TheOneRingNet are reporting that the films will go by the titles of “The Hobbit: There and Back Again”, and “The Hobbit: An/The Unexpected Journey.”
The Lord of the Rings website has confirmed that a reliable source to the site has informed them New Line Cinema have officially registered the two titles for the two Peter Jackson Middle-Earth movies.
The news though still not officially confirmed by the studio or Peter Jackson will mean that the titles of “The Hobbit: Part I”, and “The Hobbit: Part II” will become redundant.
The first of the two film’s is expected for a worldwide release date in December of 2012, while the second will likely hit screens exactly a year later.
