I love it when news like this breaks, especially when it’s for a movie that has so much weight on it’s shoulders following The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Peter Jackson starts shooting The Hobbit (which is going to be two movies) in New Zealand on 21st March and speculation on the titles of the movies has already commenced. I say speculation, TheOneRing has some rather nice information relating to the two titles which suggest that the new two-part movie will have the following titles:

  • The Hobbit: There and Back Again
  • The Hobbit: An/The Unexpected Journey

They go on to say that these titles haven’t been confirmed by the studio (in this case New Line Cinema) but they have someone on the side who registers movie names and he has confirmed that New Line have registered both of these titles.

Guess we’ll find out but I quite like them. This news follows my post this morning about The Lord of the Rings Special Edition Blu-ray release.

Thanks to reader of the site, Kenji for the heads up.

Let us know your thoughts on the titles in the comments section below.
