The Title for Star Wars: Episode VII Has Been Announced

Star Wars: Episode VII has finished principle photography, as the franchise’s official Facebook and Twitter accounts announced today. And it has a title. If John Williams could cue the drumroll please …

Thus ends months of pointless rumors and speculation, most of which revolved around purported working titles (The Ancient Fear, Return of the Sith, Rise of the Jedi) that have now been revealed to be nothing like the real thing. That was fun!

The title itself seems pretty generic (does it refer to a return of the Jedi Order?), and is perhaps designed, in typical JJ Abrams fashion, to tell us as little as possible about the actual movie. (Remember Cloverfield?) But surely that won’t stop many more months of pointless rumors and speculation. Begun the conjecture has!
