Ever since news broke of Peter Jackson's two-part Hobbit adaptation becoming a Hobbit trilogy, fans have been wondering how this would impact the names of the films.
Yesterday, the titles for all three Hobbit films - as well as the release date for the concluding film - were announced. They are:
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - December 14, 2012
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug - December 13, 2013
The Hobbit: There and Back Again - July 18, 2014
What do you think of The Desolation of Smaug as the title of the second Hobbit film? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
