Star Wars Episode 7: The Ancient Fear? Will This Be the New Title?

A lot has happened in the world of Star Wars over the past few days and it seems that the dust is beginning to settle. Huffington Post reports that Star Wars Episode 7 already has a working title and that it is called "The Ancient Fear". Hmm, so he full movie will be called Star Wars Episode 7: The Ancient Fear? As cool as it sounds, I can't say I like it that much considering that the other Star Wars movies had more meaningful names (at least to me). But, I am probably just nitpicking as usual. So, why this name? What do we know about it? Buckle up and get ready for the joy ride of your life girls and boys! Also we have a teaser poster for you are the end of the article! ;)

So, as Huffington Post reports the film's working title "The Ancient Fear" is a direct reference to one of the film's villains, played by Max von Sydow. They've reached out towards the Lucasfilm PR team, but are yet to receive a reply on the topic. I wonder, who could be this fear? Is it someone we've already had a chance to hear about in the Saga? Is it someone from the expanded universe or did they invent a whole new set of characters?

Update: here's the general idea about the leaked plot:
  1. Luke Skywalker has rebuilt the Jedi Order and he is now the (leading) Jedi Master. He is training new disciples and he has changed the Jedi Councils policies to ensure that events such as those in Episode III could never happen.
  2. The Empire still exists as a sovereign entity and is currently in a state of Cold War with the New Republic, but war is on the horizon.
  3. The Jedi will go on a mission at the start of the movie to recover an ancient Sith artifact/weapon from some abandoned ruins in order to make sure that it doesn't fall into the wrong hands.
  4. It is possible that his artifact might actually contain the powers (or the living soul) of one of the Sith lords who lived many centuries ago.
Until then, make sure you are updated with the latest news:
 Oh, and here's the poster I promised :)
