ENTERTAINMENT NEWS (CNN) — "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" is going to take a little longer to arrive in theaters.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the release date for the final chapter in Peter Jackson's "Hobbit" trilogy has been pushed back a few months to December.
Originally slated for the summer of 2014, "There and Back Again" has a new release date of December 17, 2014.
It now falls in line with the holiday release dates for the first two "Hobbit" installments: "An Unexpected Journey" arrived on December 14, 2012, and "The Desolation of Smaug" will be released on December 13 of this year.
