The third "Hobbit" film has a new title — “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” — after director Peter Jackson and others on the film felt as if the original name wasn’t descriptive of the last movie.

In a Facebook post that he started with the words, “Inside information,” Jackson said the original title “There and Back Again” “felt misplaced — after all, Bilbo has already arrived ‘there’ in the ‘Desolation of Smaug.’”

So after taking a long look at the film, expected to be released in December, Jackson said “we all agreed there is now one title that feels completely appropriate. And so: ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ it is.”

Rumors that the name might be changed began making the rounds earlier this week, and some weren't happy about it.

Fans, as well as those who took the opportunity to point out how much they’ve hated the "Hobbit" movies so far, went online to express their support and dislike of the name change.

Some even took the issue to Jackson’s Facebook page.

“Maybe the best title would be ‘The Hobbit - Hopefully better than part II’. Sorry,” wrote Robin Baron.

“Can't wait to finish the journey we started 13 years ago with you Peter Jackson. Thank you for bringing these books that mean the world to me to life in such a vivid fashion,” another wrote.
