Luke Evans has said that the final Hobbit movie’s name change From There and Back Again to The Battle of the Five Armies – was “absolutely” the right decision. Speaking to Digital Spy at the first annual Battersea Power Station party, the Bard the Bowman actor shared his thoughts on Peter Jackson’s last installment in the Hobbit trilogy.
“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 explained. “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. I think the decision’s right – when you see the film you’ll understand exactly why.”
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will open in cinemas this December.
