After finally wrapping up shooting for Star Wars Episode VII, Lucasfilm has officially released the title for the upcoming film in the franchise:
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
This news comes to us directly from StarWars.com and the Official Star Wars Facebook Page. If you go to the Episode VII tab at the top of StarWars.com, viewers are greeted with this picture. Unless The Force Awakens is another form of media relating to Episode VII, be it a book or TV special or what have you, then we have just been given the title for what is arguably the most anticipated film of all time.
Of course, such a name is no doubt to come with criticism much like previous titles (Attack of the Clones? Really?), but the internet seems to be having its fun with it, complete with "What, did the force hit the snooze button for 30 years?" jokes.
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens comes out on December 18th, 2015 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnal Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.
