The frenzy over Star Wars Episode VII is beginning to hit a fever pitch due to the recent casting announcements, which means there will be all kinds of crazy rumors flying around. The big thing we’ll see a lot of now that we know the cast is fake titles up until the title is actually revealed. Not long ago a bogus title “The Order of the Jedi” went viral online, and this week is a new one that does sound a little more convincing.
According to Harry Knowles at Ain’t It Cool News, the “working title” for Star Wars Episode VII is “The Ancient Fear”. This does sound more convincing than “The Order of the Jedi”, as it’s a three-word title like “A New Hope” and “The Phantom Menace”.
However, people need to remember that ten years ago Harry posted a similar story for Episode III, claiming that the working title for that movie was “The Creeping Fear”. That title turned out to be fake, as the working title for “Revenge of the Sith” was…Revenge of the Sith.
