Star Wars Episode VII: What’s The First Rumored Title for J.J. Abrams’ Film?

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but a new Star Wars Episode VII rumor has surfaced and it’s probably going to be debunked in a matter of hours. However, we have the first rumored title for the upcoming J.J. Abrams film and thankfully it’s in no way true. According to Slashfilm among others, the first title being floated around for the next Star Wars film is Star Wars Episode VII: A New Dawn.

Just let that soak into your rumor detector for a moment and wait for the buzzer to go off with the red light flashing.

Per Slashfilm:

The symmetry with Star Wars Episode VI: A New Hope makes this seem more like something a fan made up rather than official, but the site quotes a source as saying “there will be many potential titles by now, but yes that is a title I have heard mentioned. So do with that what you will.”

As Germain Lussier points out numerous times, this is nothing more than a rumor at this point and we can’t really take it for more than that. But while the title may a complete fallacy, the idea of naming Star Wars Episode VII is something that needs to be discussed, among other things.

With filming beginning this January, not only does J.J. Abrams need to settle one title, he needs to settle on a cast sometime soon as well. We’ve had nothing but rumors when it comes to Star Wars Episode VII but sooner or later something will need to start sticking as fact.

Thankfully, this title isn’t that. What would make a good title for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII? Let us know what you would name the film in the comments section below.

    Saw this…honestly don’t think they’ll have a title on this for a while….at least maybe until CC ’14? and it ought to be “Shadows of the Empire”.

      Shadows of the Empire is such an amazing title. They should honestly go the James Bond route and start naming the movies after books in the EU. There’s enough out there to do it and would at least not make al the books ever written not be totally erased by these films.

        very true. Heir to the Empire would be cool and there are a ton of other great (and granted, not so great) titles in the EU. and even though Shadows of the Empire messes with canon, it’d be an appropriate title for the new conflict that this trilogy will have.
