Terceiro filme da Trilogia O Hobbit Ganha Novo Nome


Pouco menos de uma hora atrás, Peter Jackson divulgou no seu Facebook que o título da terceira parte de O Hobbit terá um novo título. Ao invés de The Hobbit: There And Back Again (Lá e De Volta Outra Vez), o novo filme se chamará The Hobbit: The Battle of  the Five Armies (a batalha dos 5 exércitos). Claro que o título se justifica devido ao clima mais épico do novo filme, porém acho que parte da magia de O Hobbit se perde com a ausência do De Volta Outra Vez. Que já preparia terreno para o início de O Senhor dos Anéis, e contrasta com a calma que antecede a guerra vista na trilogia.

Para quem quiser ler o texto de Peter Jackson, publico abaixo na íntegra:

"Our journey to make The Hobbit Trilogy has been in some ways like Bilbo's own, with hidden paths revealing their secrets to us as we've gone along. “There and Back Again” felt like the right name for the second of a two film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo’s arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film. But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced—after all, Bilbo has already arrived “there” in the "Desolation of Smaug".

When we did the premiere trip late last year, I had a quiet conversation with the studio about the idea of revisiting the title. We decided to keep an open mind until a cut of the film was ready to look at. We reached that point last week, and after viewing the movie, we all agreed there is now one title that feels completely appropriate.

And so: "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" it is.

As Professor Tolkien intended, “There and Back Again” encompasses Bilbo’s entire adventure, so don’t be surprised if you see it used on a future box-set of all three movies.

Before then however, we have a film to finish, and much to share with you. It’s been a nice quiet time for us—Jabez and I happily editing away in a dark cave in Wellington—but those halcyon days are quickly coming to an end. It will soon be time to step into the light. Expect to see and hear much about The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in the coming months.

And there’s also The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Cut, which we’re in the process of finishing, with over 25 mins of new scenes, all scored with original music composed by Howard Shore.

It’ll be a fun year!"


No texto, Peter Jackson também fala da versão estendida de A Desolação de Smaug. Que seguindo as versões estendidas de O Senhor dos Anéis e do 1o Hobbit, terá 25 minutos adicionais além de milhões de extras novos.
O final do texto não poderia ser mais propício: "Será um ano divertido". Concordamos, Peter. O filme estréia dia 11 de dezembro de 2014.
