The Hobbit: There and Back Again had been set to debut in July 2014. It will follow The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which came out in December 2012, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which will reach theaters in December 2013.

"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 Bros., a unit of Time Warner Inc .

The Hobbit series is a prequel to JRR Tolkien's epic fantasy The Lord of the Rings, which director Peter Jackson made into three Oscar-winning films about a decade ago.

The first Hobbit film was a blockbuster with global sales of $981 million, according to the Box Office Mojo website. The trilogy is financed by Warner Bros. New Line Cinema and MGM.
