It’s “THE FORCE AWAKENS”. The subtitle for Star Wars Episode 7, the first installment in the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy is The Force Awakens. It was announced via StarWars.com.
Let me take a moment for that to sink in. Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens.
I don’t like it much.
I know Star Wars fans can be a nitpicky bunch, but my first and even thoughtful reactions to this title are lukewarm at best. It sounds like a faux dramatic/mysterious title the likes of which I’ve seen attached to countless amateur Star Wars fan films before.
What does it even mean? The Force Awakens? Even though the confusion will likely be remedied by the eventual film, I still feel like there was something mysterious or exciting even about titles like Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones without coming across as vague to the point of frustrating.
Whatever. A trailer any day now would be welcome.
