The release date of 'Hobbit: There and Back Again' has been pushed back to December 17, 2014, mirroring the pre-Christmas release pattern of Peter Jackson's 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
The third film in Jackson's fantasy trilogy, based on the novel by JRR Tolkien, was originally due to be released in July 2014, reported Digital spy.
"We're excited to complete the trilogy the same way we started it, as a holiday treat for moviegoers everywhere," said Dan Fellman, president of distribution for Warner Brothers.
The second film in the trilogy, 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug', is still due to be released on December 13, 2013.
An extended edition of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' will follow later in the year, in the same manner as the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
