    Is there one created yet? After 10 pages of searching I haven't come across one.

    A link would be nice (and not taken rudely). Mace Windy, any help?

    My opinion is that it will need to have a theme of falling or something ending, due to Episode IV's title of A New Hope.

    Star Wars
    Episode III:
    Fall of the Jedi

    Redundant. Please repost your thoughts in here

    The other day, I thought of the titles:

    The Empire Shall Rise

    or

    The Emperor Shall Rise

    or

    The Sith Shall Rise

    Kind of like

    The Empire Strikes Back

    just thoughts.

    It won't be a "of the" title.

    I can't see an 'of the' title again. I would like this:

    A Shattered Republic

    or

    A Republic Falls

    or

    The Republic Falls (there is, after all, only one Galactic Republic)

    or

    An Empire Rises

    It could even end up being 'The New Order'.

    The New Order...that's easily the best one I've heard so far. The "of the" titles are good, but it's unlikely that GL will use them if he follows the same pattern as the OT (which he seems to like doing). "The New Order" has a nice ring to it, it's not corny for once (probably why he won't use it ;)), and it has extra meaning for all us fanboys who have known what it means for so long. :D

    I am almost positive it will be Fall of the Jedi, if Lucas follows the pattern of the other titles.

    Check thisa out:

    The Phantom Menace and A New Hope. The both have three words. They both suggest the begining of a change in the galaxy. THM suggests the begins of a shadow of the galaxy, and ANH suggests a light returning to the galaxy.

    Attack of the Clones and The Empire Strikes Back. Both have four words. They both deal with a military action.

    Fall of the Jedi and Return of the Jedi. Both would have four words. Both would have the double meaning. Return of the Jedi is talking about Anakin Skywalker's return to the Light Side. It also has the large meaning of the Return of the Jedi Order. So if we continued this logic Episode III should be Fall of the Jedi because it talks about the specific, Anakin's fall to the Dark Side, as well as the general fall of the Jedi Order. This is how it all makes sense to me at least.

    If you all were here the last few years you would agree NO one guessed that Episode 2 would be named Attack of the Clones. If you were here for Episode I (I was not but I am getting this from several oldbies) no one guessed that it would be called The Phantom Menace.

    I am personally rooting for the rumored Ep2 title, "The Shadow Falls".

    I will be wrong...and all of you will be too :p

    ...And that is the way I want it!

    ForceMaster,

    You have some good thoughts, and I agree that Lucas likes to use titles with dual meanings. "Fall of the Jedi" would be a very credible title in that respect.

    I think it is true that in Episode III we are seeing a huge transformation taking place -- the decay of the Republic and democracy, the demise of the Jedi, and the fall of Anakin to the Dark side. This kind of death and birth into another form would seem to be a good starting place for a title. In addition, we know Lucas likes to reference the syntax and feel of the serial flicks of years past.

    I might venture my own guess as something similar:

    Fall of the Jedi
    Rise of the Empire

    Honestly, I've thought and thought about this, and nothing I or anybody's come up with so far sounds remotely StarWarsy or Lucasy, if that makes any sense. I also doubt it will contain 'of the', as Vaderbait stated.

    hey HawkNC it was I who first suggested The New Order, don't forget it.

    I like The Shadow Falls.

    I think Lucas could use something revolving around the Dark Side cloud.

    SW Episode III The Dark Side Shroud, or if you dont mind an 'of the' title, Shroud Of The Dark Side.

    That reminds me, we are all aware there is a 100% chance Lucas will NOT use our ideas, right? :p

    The winner should get to be a VIP for a month.

    I stick with my idea, Fall of the Jedi.

    THE.

    The title will be corny. He is not going to use any of the ones that are obvious and many people think will be used.

    The Republics Worst Nightmare

    That will be the title.
