While we will likely be able to enjoy a teaser trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies relatively soon (like, probably Comic-Con soon), we won’t get a look at the full trailer until around October.  That’s still plenty of weeks ahead of the film’s December 17th release date, but too late to attach it to this summer’s big blockbuster films.  While that’s been the case for the last two trailers, Jackson was pretty forward about the reason we haven’t seen anything from the final film of the franchise just yet.

Hit the jump for his explanation and for more on The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

Jackson himself broke the news via his Facebook page:

I like that Jackson’s being upfront about the VFX work, especially since The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug looked wholly unfinished in certain sequences in the film itself, and considering The Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortensen’s recent comments about Jackson’s love of CGI.  While I enjoyed Jackson’s Hobbit entries, I’d really love to see him knock this final installment out of the park.  If you’re wondering what happened to The Hobbit: There and Back Again, Jackson explained the title change to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies a few months back.  The new title certainly teases something fans have been looking forward to seeing on screen since the trilogy was announced, so I’ve got my fingers crossed that it pays off in a big way. Keep your eyes peeled for the film’s teaser trailer in the coming weeks.

    Although I have been incredibly let down by The Hobbit films, Part 2 was way better than part 1, here is to hoping that part 3 is at least on Par with the original trilogy.

      I never thought I’d be as ambivalent about a Hobbit film as I am for Part 3. I’m honestly more excited about the next video production blog they release. Those are great.

      I don’t understand how people can say this; at least part 1 was a proper film, it had a balance of story and character development. Part 2 was just action, action, action. And the story bits were either outright terrible (Bard’s children, the Wormtongue knockoff with Stephen Fry, Legolas’ ‘romance’, which was just a stare essentially) or derivative of LOTR (the love between the elf and non-elf for instance). What story there was at this point in the book, like Beorn, was skipped over and altered irreparably. It showed Gandalf’s intelligence, having the dwarves enter a few at a time, whereas in the film, they broke into his house, denied him entrance TO HIS OWN HOUSE, fell asleep and where you’d think that he’d be pissed when he manages to get inside, he sees them all sleeping and thinks ‘aww, I’ll let them sleep’. And by morning he’s completely fine with them. I don’t know how the writing team became so awful.

    Next big WB release is Into the Storm (I think?) and it also has Richard Armitage, so I’d bet on that having the teaser.

    Since Jackson has gone all George Lucas on this franchise I have only seen 2/3 of the first Hobbit film, haven’t seem the 2nd and will go as far as avoiding the trailers for the 3rd. I will not let this franchise blemish LOTR as the prequels did to my beloved Star Wars

    I thought part 2 was worst than the first one

      Do you even english?

    After 2, I have almost no hope that this will impress me, the last one was so poorly written and made, I think Jackson is trying to outbad Lucas.

    I’m hoping this final film will reveal more culinary masterpieces from the people of Lake Town.

    Another exciting LOTR prequel. I’m just excited as I was with the first two Hobbit movies https://vid.me/CYT
