We’re slowly learning bits and pieces about “Star Wars: Episode VII,” most recently with a slew of casting confirmations.
Now “Ain’t It Cool News” claims to have gotten their hands on the subtitle for the new sequel: “The Ancient Fear.”
The site’s source reportedly said that the name refers to the character played Max Von Sydow in the movie, set 30 years after the events in “Return of the Jedi.”
The actor was among the stars J.J. Abrams confirmed would take part in “Episode VII,” but none of their characters have been made public.
“Inside Llewyn Davis” actor Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), Domhnall Gleeson (“About Time”), Daisy Ridley (“Mr. Selfridge”) and “Attack the Block” actor John Boyega will also star.
After fan backlash noting that Ridley was the only female star, aside from the returning Carrie Fisher, Abrams promised the cast would include another woman in a major role.
How does it compare to the other films’ titles (“The Empire Strikes Back,” “Return of the Jedi,” etc.)? Share your thoughts in the comments!
