    So what does everyone think of the new title for Episode II? It's causing a big ruckus already in fandom and across other boards online.

    Personally, I could care less what King George named it! It could be "Killer Droids From Outer Space" or something and it would not affect the way I view the film at all.

    Bottom line: Episode II is going to rock hard, no matter what it's called. :)

    What does everyone else think?

    Well, at first I was like, "That's it?" It seemed a little flat to me.

    It's starting to grow on me, though. I have a feeling that once we see the film, and start to understand just what an attack by these clones is like, the title will have a whole lot more meaning.

    GL has gotten us this far, and it's his story, so I'm willing to trust he knows what he's doing.

    I heartily agree! I trust in Old Faithful, AKA George. :)

    What's the chances that ol' George is taking advantage of all of the recent press about cloning to get some extra exposure for ep 2? I know the guy is a genius and this just seems like one more way to have the media do some work for him.

    I'm cool with it. I remember when I first heard 'The Empire Strikes Back' (People Magazine, 1978) and I thought "Huh? Thats not the name of a movie. You dont name movies like that!" :-} Weirdly, I got that exact same feeling when I heard "The Phantom Menace" but it grew on me and now I love it.

    AOTC will be the same way. Give it time.

    Haha, Tobey, never thought of that... George IS a genius, after all. :)

    I also had my doubts about the title "The Phantom Menace," but after seeing the film for the first time, it all made sense. I have learned to trust in Lucas, he knows what he's doing, here.

    Like the first time I heard Ewan McGregor might play Obi-Wan, my reaction was, "The druggie from Trainspotting??" Of course, I LOVE Ewan (I run a website about him- duh), but I couldn't exactly picture him as a Jedi Knight. But wow, he is Jedi to the bone in TPM.
