    What fool maybe would ask his kids to name the next movie in his multi million dollar series of movies.

    Okay, so far, this is my favourite JC quote about the Ep 2 title:

    "I think it refers to all the fanboys (essentially clones themselves) attacking Lucas over the title." - mp3PO

    :D

    i still don't like it
    even after a nights sleep
    but i think i will let it grow on me


    side note does this mean we are going to get new packages for the toys?
    is POTJ gone to be replaced with ....?

    Isn't it rich, will this film bomb?
    Jar-Jar's still in the thing -
    No more Qui-Gon.
    Send in the clones.

    Predictable, yes, now Darth Maul is gone
    Always two there must be
    Now there's just one
    Where are the clones?
    Send in the clones.

    Just when I won the pod race if I tried
    Palpatine tempted me to the dark side.
    Massed sabre battles with cool SFX
    Jar-Jar still sucks
    The script makes me retch.

    Don't you love slapstick?
    Lucas does I fear,
    He thought you'd want what he wants,
    Sorry my dear
    But where are the clones?
    There ought to be clones
    Quick send in the clones

    What a surprise!
    Who could foretell
    Anakin becomes Vader
    Gets the princess as well?
    Why only now when the first
    Movie got bad reviews?
    What a surprise
    What a to-do...

    Isn't it rich, isn't it queer
    Cashing in once more this late in his career
    And where are the clones
    Quick send in the clones
    Don't bother, they're here.

    A case of Attack of the killer clones. :lol

    Think they should just stick to the POTJ packaging

    Guess what? the name is starting to grow on me now

    Hem... Its ok... Lucas has done better...

    but after all, this could be a phoney title perhaps.. to throw us off track... who knows

    The latest news is that Ewan McGregor has (supposedly) said he doesn't like the title either.

    Ah, very funny.

    How about making the letters slime green, that would work.

    Think the green slime will help?

    Heard the release date in the US is May 22nd
    wonder how long it will take to get here?

    I thought they were still in talks about the whole 'One World Release' thing? Having delayed releases around the world can end up hurting a film, especially if the critics start saying it sucks. But delayed release can also help, cause it gives them time to start the marketing ball rolling. I just hope we don't have to wait a month for it this time!!!
    I actually don't mind the title. I can remember that I didn't like the title of ESB, and thats my favourite movie of all!

    The release dates for the Phantom Menace were as follows: (from IMDB)

    USA - May 19
    Australia - June 3
    New Zealand - June 10

    I'd imagine something similar for Episode 2.

    I remember after it had come out in the US - it was so tempting just to read what all the fans had to say, but I knew it would only ruin it.

    Then I eventually cracked, and read one, which I regretted, because it revealed that Maul died. Ah well, you live and learn.

    I've only just read the new title on the star wars.com website and I think it's a really dopey name. sort of campy. I thought Star Wars: Episode II The Clone Wars would do fine rather than what is written. Mind you is the movie about the clone wars or not? I shall just have to wait and see....
    I hope lucas is just spreading misinformation, he's a boner if he isn't.
