Despite rumors to the contrary, Warner Bros. is announcing that the first in producer Peter Jackson’s two-part version of The Hobbit will arrive a little later than originally expected (2011), but earlier than has been reported (2013). With the financial woes at co-producer MGM apparently not to blame for the hold-up, The Hobbit‘s two parts will now come to theaters in December 2012 and December 2013 respectively, according to the Heat Vision blog.
