I wish you could understand how much finding out the official title for Episode VII means to me. I am a Star Wars dick-lord fawning fanboy. Who never thought he’d seen another Star Wars, let alone one which may actually be good. It ain’t even about the title itself. It’s the function the title serves. An obvious reminder that gets my balls a-twitter. This movie is real.


Lucasfilm quietly revealed the full title of Star Wars: Episode VII with a logo released this morning announcing the end of principal photography: Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

No additional details were provided, so fans will have to be content with speculation about the plot of the J.J. Abrams film. We do know that it takes place about 30 years after the events ofReturn of the Jedi, and of course features the stars of the original series.

Opening Dec. 18, 2015, Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars franchise veterans Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and Warwick Davis, and newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie.
