The release date for the third and final Hobbit film has been revealed, as well as a change of name for the big-budget adventure.

The conclusion of Peter Jackson’s prequel trilogy to Lord of the Rings will be in UK cinemas on December 12.

It will again star Brookmans Park actor and Sherlock star Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, the eponymous hobbit.

The name of the Kiwi director’s sixth visit to Middle Earth has caused some consternation among die-hard Tolkien fans.

It will be called The Battle of the Five Armies, re- titled from There and Back Again.
