Inside RA US Information (with all due respect to Sir Peter Jackson)…
Dear RA US readers,
Our journey of waiting for The Hobbit Trilogy to be released has been in some ways like Bilbo’s own, with many special joys, but also hidden shenanigans by its creators, as they’ve revealed their secrets all too slowly as we’ve followed along. “There and Back Again” felt like a name. It was a fine name. Never had any problem with the name. But having seen two of the three movies, it suddenly felt misguided.
When I was reading our Facebook page earlier today, I came across a quiet little thread in which an RA US member named Elizabeth commented on Sir Peter’s new title for the third film. I decided to keep an open mind until I thought about it a little more. I have now reached that point, and after much thought, flipping through countless RA photos, and watching my favorite bits of AUJ and DoS again, I agree with Elizabeth: PJ should just give in and give the film the one title that feels completely appropriate… and obvious.
**And so here, on RA US, at least: “The Hobbit: Thorin” it is.**
