Now, the decision to turn the Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’ into a trilogy has its supporters and detractors. While some are looking forward to more Tolkien loveliness, others doubt that the third film is being made with artistic integrity in mind. But no matter where you fall on that particular spectrum, a trilogy it shall be, so now all that’s left is wait and hope.

The first film in the series, scheduled for theaters in December, will be titled ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ as most of you know. The second, now titled The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug‘, is set to amaze us in December of next year. The third entry in the trilogy has taken on the title ‘The Hobbit: There and Back Again‘, and will officially hit theaters on July 18th, 2014.

While a year separates the first two films of the series, Warner Bros. explained they wanted to have a shorter gap between the second and third installments. We’re sure fans won’t mind.

So, there you have it. The three films in ‘The Hobbit Trilogy’. What do you think of the titles, and what’s your take on the series being expanded into a trilogy? Sound off in the comments section!

    I am thoroughly unconvinced, despite the brilliance of Lord of the Rings. I simply wonder what material he’ll be working with to stretch this out to three films.
