    It's a typically vague title, so not really a spoiler, unless you don't want to know the title (but it will be appearing everywhere from now on).

    From ComingSoon.net ...

    Presumably that should be "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" ... unless JJ Abrams / Lucasfilm have decided not to include it as part of the official Saga, but as a spin-off movie.

    Episode VII will appear only in the opening crawl, not in any of the marketing I've heard. This is to distant itself away from the prequels which has emphasis on the episode number.

    I'm not crazy about the title however, doesn't have any impact on me. Lets hope it grows on me.

    It'll be a pain in the sit-upon if the idiots change the logos yet again just so they can release yet another version of the older movies with matching logos to the new ones. :(

    The title is uninspired and bland. As long as the actual move can't be described that way, I won't care about the title.

    "The Force Awakens" ... is it really any more bland than the others? Then again, since the Force has already been "Unleashed" in games, maybe "Awakens" is rather pathetic - maybe the Force is getting sleepy in its old age. ;)

    In regards to titles...

    The Empire Strikes Back ... good
    Return of the Jedi ... good
    Revenge of the Sith ... good
    The Phantom Menace ... unusual, but not bland
    Attack of the Clones ... extra cheesy, but not bland
    A New Hope ... bland, but also unimportant since it was tacked on later
    The Force Awakens .... blander

    It's not necessarily 'out of place' compared to the other titles. It's just not particularly exciting (to me anyway).

    Yeah, the title does nothing for me one way or the other. Considering all the titles they have for books, games, comics, etc, it's getting pretty hard to come up with something exciting and completely original. While I am looking forward to the new movies, I'm still optimistically cautious about getting my hopes up over anything new. My way of combating that seems to be indifference until something actually happens. :p
