Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens - Official Title Revealed!

At long last, the official Disney/Lucasfilm representatives have announced the title of the new Star Wars Episode 7 film. From now, the upcoming seventh installment of the Star Wars saga shall be known as (drum roll) The Force Awakens. The hype is real and you can expect to see a lot of new speculations and rumors in the upcoming weeks that will be directly related to the new title. Unfortunately, our "guess" about the title being "The Ancient Fear" has proven to be incorrect, but we certainly expected this. Want to learn more about the new Star Wars 7 official title and what else Disney told us? Read on my friend!

The Star Wars 7 news blog explains:

The Force Awakens. This may not have been high on the list of speculated titles over the past couple of years the way fan titles like The Ancient Fear were, but personally I think it’s a solid choice. From a stylistic perspective it fits very well with previous Star Wars titles (particularly The Empire Strikes Back) and it certainly fits the whole “rebirth of Star Wars” motif that LFL and Disney have put forth.

However, the title does spark up a lot of interesting questions and our Star Wars 7 news blog will try to get to the bottom of everything we can assure you of that. What we can say now is that the title "The Force Awakens" gives us some interesting new context for some of the various rumors that have circulated thus far about the film’s plot and characters. Has the Force somehow been “sleeping” all these years? Did Luke not end up passing on what he had learned after all? Or is there perhaps something else on the rise that will change our fundamental view of the Force?

The title is also one of the first pieces of substantial official information about the new film to have been released in quite some time, now. Could the first teaser trailer be that far off? It had been assumed for awhile now that the teaser would be released at Christmas this year, but the latest rumors suggest that it may be released considerably earlier than this. The official Star Wars Twitter account has indicated that principle photography on Episode 7 is now complete. Announcement of the title this morning might be further evidence that release of the trailer could be imminent.

However, the most important thing at the moment is that we now have an official name for the new Star Wars movie!
