Why the New Star Wars 7 Title Sucks


Star Wars, historically, have weird (Revenge of the Sith, Return of the Jedi) and straight up awful (A New Hope, The Phantom Menace – granted, Star Wars was the original title, but still) titles. So, The Force Awakens, is just too right, too good. Is this a new era in Star Wars movie titles? Are they all going to sound like actually good movies? I mean, even the fan favorite, The Empire Strikes Back, doesn’t sound right. The Empire Strikes Back? C’mon.


  • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (originally just “Star Wars”)
  • Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
  • Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (originally subtitled Revenge of the Jedi)
  • Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
  • Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones
  • Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith

The rumor was that The Ancient Fear was the actual title for Episode 7 and THAT TOTALLY FITS! But, well, I guess Georgie-boy is not involved as much anymore, so they had to throw that shit out. But, man, that would be THE title. The Ancient Fear, haha, so awful! I think the new title should be this though:
