It was to be two films, but as we saw with the Lord of the Rings, Jackson doesn't make short films. I imagine the Producers decide to go with three films just because the two were so freaking long. So instead of something like 45 minutes of extra material for extended version, we get a third film instead (with probably still 10 or 15 minutes of extra footage in each as they recut things they still needed to drop for a "reasonable feature length film".
