FILE - In this Jan. 20, 2012 file photo, Peter Jackson is interviewed at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Jackson is tweaking the ending of Bilbo Baggins' journey. The director says the original title of "The Hobbit" finale felt misplaced since Baggins arrived at his destination in the second film.

Tolkien fantasy adventure has being renamed "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies." (AP Photo/Chris Pizzello, File)
