Rumored subtitle for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII

May. 6, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

It's probably going to be a while before Disney and J.J. Abrams officially announce the subtitle for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. but AICN believes they may know what it is, or at least the working title.

Back in January a source told the site some filming for the new STAR WARS might take place in Abu Dhabi, and claimed the subtitle will be THE ANCIENT FEAR. Recent images revealed there might be a STAR WARS set in the desert, and now another source has told AICN THE ANCIENT FEAR is the working title for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. The source also says "it refers to Max Von Sydow's villain who makes Pazuzu look like a pussy!"

Obviously this is just a giant rumor at this point, however I wouldn't be surprised if THE ANCIENT FEAR is the working title for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Maybe it won't end up being called that by the time it hits theaters, but I think there's a chance it might be the subtitle they are going with for now. It has a nice ring to it, but this isn't the first rumored subtitle for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, and it probably also won't be the last, so I'm not going to get too attached to THE ANCIENT FEAR. What do you think of THE ANCIENT FEAR as the subtitle for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will open on December 18th, 2015.

I just hope it doesn't involve the words 'rise' or 'darkness'. Too much of that going on.

meh

It does sound like the subtitle equivalent of a bad fan-made photoshopped poster. That said, "The Phantom Menace" was one of the coolest-sounding subtitles, and wound up being the worst PoS, I'm not going to worry about how the subtitle works, rumor or not.

"Star Wars Episode VII: Pazuzu look like a pussy" would have been a classic title, hehe. Still, The Ancient Fear sounds alright.

All the subtitles have a certain cheese or melodramatic factor. Attack of the Clones being the worst title so far. This one isn't so bad.

I could live with it, although I doubt it will be the final title. And internet fandom wasnt quite was it is now in 1999, but I seem to remember alot of people thinking The Phantom Menace title HAD to be a joke. I kind of like the title now. The movie, not so much

All jokes aside, I wonder if this new film will have Leia as a Jedi?

The Ancient Fear is also the nickname all of Larry King's ex-wives share for him.

I've heard conflicting reports

On another site, the subtitle is said to be "The Order of the Jedi". Honestly, I'm a fan of neither. I am however a fan of Sydow being a badass villain.

YES!

Max will be a villain like i had hoped. Personally i think he would have been wasted as a replacement for Guinness as Obi Wan's force ghost.

"The power of of the Sith compells you!!

"Let me tell you about Palpatine. Even he was getting sick of Vader whining about his mommy and Padme!"

Blue Harvest...

It's the fake working title. Others were "A New Dawn," "Best Served Cold" "The Skull Country" and "The Red Reign." It'll change again soon.

A New Hope...The Ancient Fear

I wouldn't put it past JJ Abrams to basically just do the exact opposite of the classic Star Wars subtitle. After all, this is the same guy who thought it'd be cool to just reverse the roles of Spock and Kirk in Into Darkness, so this sounds like it's right up his alley. That said, I'm 99% sure this won't end up being the actual subtitle for the film.

I have some insider knowledge and I'm sorry JoBlo but you are wrong the title for the next episode is actually Star Wars Episode VII : The Rise of Jar Jar. On a more accurate note I'm a big fan of continuity and one of my favourite bits of the prequels was in Revenge of the Sith when Chancellor Palpatine steals the scene and chews it up whist telling Anakin about the Sith who murdered his master - it would be kind of cool if they could link this new villain to the murdered predecessor in some

It would be good if Von Sidow did somehow manage to find the cure to cheat death and has been hidden all this time. Otherwise I'd like to see a different take on Sith's - a darker tone that instead of one after Vaders demise they recruited an academy similar to the Jedi temple. One last point I'm calling it now that whatever MoCap character Serkis will play he is gonna own this film just like did as Caesar.

Like others have said, it's just a working title and means nothing. P.S. I hope that the bad guy is not a full on Sith. Maybe a Jedi who turns dark during the second movie or something. I'd like to see an original baddie that isn't running around with a red lightsaber.
