It took a while getting there, but The Hobbit is officially greenlit, has a director and is now in its pre-production phase. Peter Jackson’s two-part telling of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic fantasy novel will serve as a prequel to the filmmaker’s previous Oscar-winning adaptations of The Lord of the Rings. Now there’s word of what the two official titles will be for each of The Hobbit movies.
The Hobbit: There and Back Again and The Hobbit: An/The Unexpected Journey were registered by New Line, according to a spy for TheOneRing.net. The former comes from the full title of Tolkien’s original novel, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again. While this isn’t official confirmation, the fact that both monikers were registered by the studio is a pretty strong indication of what the two films will be called. As a fan of the source, I appreciate anything that nods back to Tolkien’s original work, and these certainly make sense as titles.
