Return of the Jedi Part 2
Episode VII: Jar Jar Returns
Episode VII: Episode VIII
E7: Even More Jedi Return. As Well as Some Sith.
Been seeing this title thrown around on forums every once in while, lately.
Star Wars Episode VII: The Order Reborn
Don't know as to where it stems from, but it seems as if some fans are already accepting it as the title, and I've gotta say...I ain't hating it. Simple, effective and to the point. It's got a nice ring to it imo. Dunno...what do you think?
Not a fan of it...not yet.
Sounds like the Empire's New Order, or the Jedi Order.. Not sure if too ambiguous, portentous, or kind of cool..
That just doesn't really sound like a movie title to me. Sounds closer to a video game like The Force Unleashed, except kind of static and boring.
Yeah, I gotta say after repeating it out loud a few times, is when it really began to grow on me.
...unfortunately, I wasn't able to process it fully due to the dirty looks I was getting out in public.
I know...it tends to be all of the above, right? Ha. To me it does seem rather simplistic, maybe too much so, but at the same time previous Star Wars titles fit that mold also, as they just shoot right to the point of the movie itself. On the plus side of things, if J. J. Abrams seeks to break new ground, and have Episode VII carve its' own niche in the pantheons of movie history, then perhaps something as simple as a changing of the status quo--in terms of the patterns set by the titles of the two trilogies to come before it--will set it apart from the other first episodes of each respective trilogy, and be a first step among many taken to define the ST as its' own beast altogether. Then again, too much change might make VII feel awkward and unfamiliar to series' fans, and that might not be such a good idea...dunno.
Yeah, I get what you mean, as when you brought up The Force Unleashed title I did immediately draw a comparison between that and The Order Reborn based on the general tone not feeling...Star Warsy, for lack of a better Word, especially for a movie title. One reason in particular that I do like the title though, is that as MillionthVoice alluded to earlier, The Order Reborn suggests the possibility of a new Sith or Jedi order, and I think that adds a certain mystique like A New Hope and The Phantom Menace did, wherein prior to watching you don't know who the hero or threat is quite yet.
Almost exactly what I posted...
Something in the rhythm seems clunky. Let's scan it:
The Or/der Re/born
Too slack in the middle for such a short title. And like others said, it's not very dramatic. Sounds more like a vague theme.
However, I have heard much worse. Especially my own ideas!
Episode VII : Alice in Wonderland 2
Claimant to the Throne
The Imperial Dynasty Restored
The Dark Dominion Restored
Herald from the Unknown
Star Wars; Episode 7; Elite Of The Tame
Star Wars; Episode 7; Arc Sight Of JC
Star Wars; Episode 7; Rewound Time Of The Emperor
Star Wars; Episode 7; Recluse Be The Wild Jedi One
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Different Droid Agents
"Star Wars Episode VII: No Planet For Old Muun"
I vote for "Return of the Cash Cow."
Episode VII: Fortunes of Disney Destiny
I'm really thinking it's going to be the rumored "A New Dawn." Something about it rings true and I'm not sure what it is. Although, I'd prefer "The New Dawn."
I keep coming back to that as well.
Star Wars: Episode VII - Traditions Be Damned
I don't think it should be. That title symbolizes the ending of ROTJ, not the beginning of a trilogy that will surely start with a new war. A New Threat is more Ike it.
The Phantom Menace led to Revenge of the Sith (menace and sith)
A New Hope led to Return of the Jedi (hope and jedi)
The New Dawn could lead to Balance of the Force or some equally positive conclusion (dawn to positive conclusion)
Regardless, I think it should be saved for Episode IX, where it would seem more appropriate.
Back to my title speculation...
If it's revealed that it is Darth Plagueis, then I hope they go with "The Hidden Enemy Returns".
If it's the Emperor's secret apprentice, then I hope they go with "Harbinger of the Emperor".
If it's a new type of Sith cult, then I hope they go with "A Dark Sect Rises".
If it's a entirely new enemy, then I hope they go with "An Evil Threat Unleashes".
If it's a return visit of Obi-Wan and Anakin's ghosts warning the heroes of what's to come, then I hope they go with "Heralds of the Force".
I feel terrible for not liking that name simply because it reuses the word 'new' which will always be strictly for ANH in my mind.
