Third Film in ‘Hobbit’ Trilogy Gets a Release Date!

Just over a month ago, we brought you news that director Peter Jackson’s upcoming feature, The Hobbit, originally intended as a two-film saga, would instead become an epic trilogy.  We are now thrilled to report that fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s prequel to The Lord Of The Rings will only need to wait a mere seven months between the second and third films!

The final film in the trilogy, titled The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will be released worldwide on July 18, 2014.  The title was originally given to the second film, which will now be called The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.  Here is the finalized list of release dates for each installment:

An Unexpected Journey – December 14, 2012

The Desolation of Smaug – December 13, 2013

There and Back Again – July 18, 2014

Personally, I’m thankful that Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM Pictures are taking this approach with the release of the third film, and I’m sure most everyone else will be as well.  Enjoy your return to Middle-earth!

  1. All i know about the Hobbit is the cartoon from way back when. I’m not a fan of the LoTR movies, nor the books which is strange as i am a huge D&D fan. I really look forward to the Hobbit as it just seems more personal (least as my memory serves.)

    • So are we first there was some concern on my part that it was being milked to death by adding a third film, but I’ve decided to just be happy that the movies got made at all. Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment!
