Peter Jackson's The Hobbit and The Hobbit Sequel may have official titles soon. New Line has registered two monikers for these upcoming Lord of the Rings prequels, which follow Bilbo Baggins on his adventure to retrieve a treasure from the marauding dragon Smaug with the help of a dwarf army.

The first title is the full title of the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien: The Hobbit: There and Back Again. The second title is: The Hobbit: An/The Unexpected Journey.

This registry is the first indication of what The Hobbit and The Hobbit Sequel's full titles will be, but neither title has been officially confirmed by New Line, Warner Bros., or Peter Jackson.
