New 'Star Wars' film may have its title
The new Star Wars film may have its title. Since the first cast photo was released last week with what looks like scripts in their laps, we can only assume that one of those pages is the title page.
There has been a lot of speculation as to what JJ Abrams would call episode seven of the Star Wars saga, and MoviePilot is reporting that it will be called "The Order of the Jedi," and feature Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o as dark jedi Asajj Ventress. That rumor has not been confirmed or denied, and it should be pointed out that the character of Asajj is from Cartoon Network's "Clone Wars," which takes place between episodes two and three.
Today, Ain't It Cool News said that they have an unnamed source saying that the working title of the new film is "The Ancient Fear," a reference to the movie's villain, played by Max Von Sydow.
The title "The Ancient Fear" is reminiscent of Yoda's line about the path to the dark side from episode one, "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering."
Yeah, sorry to have to remind fans of "The Phantom Menace," but it's an interesting thought to have episode seven be "The Ancient Fear," eight to be "The Ancient Anger," nine to be The Ancient Hate," and episode ten to be "The Ancient Suffering." Still, this is all just speculation.
