Third Film Title Registered Amid Peter Jackson Announcing New Title for There and Back Again?

In the interview with Digital Spy Evans, who plays Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit trilogy, spoke about the recent change in the title of the film from There and Back Again to The Battle of Five Armies.

"I actually think it's absolutely right because when it was two films There and Back Again would've been the second film's title. Now it's three films it's become redundant," he said.

Evans went on to speak about how the change was completely justified and the fact that the film was a 'very important part of the story.'

"We have the Battle of the Five Armies which we focus on, it's a very important part of the story. I think it's right, I think it's appropriate that it's changed and I think Peter would've thought about it with a lot of care," he added.. "I think the decision's right - when you see the film you'll understand exactly why."

The logo for The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies was also released. It is pretty simplistic and along the lines of the previous logos.

Peter Jackson announced that he had retitled the film via his Facebook page on April 24.

He expressed his reasons for making the change:

"There and Back Again felt like the right name for the second of a two films telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo's arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film," wrote Jackson. "But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced - after all, Bilbo has already arrived 'there' in the Desolation of Smaug."

Jackson said he had been considering the change for quite some time now and even had a conversation with the studio about that during the premiere trip for the Desolation of Smaug.   

"We decided to keep an open mind until a cut of the film was ready to look at," he stated. "We reached that point last week, and after viewing the movie, we all agreed there is now one title that feels completely appropriate."

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies will hit theaters on Dec. 18.
