Yep, so this is the official subtitle for Star Wars 7, “The Force Awakens”. I dig the title. I like it.
Some of you may ask, why didn’t they name the title, “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens”??? Well, if you know Star Wars way of marketing, the movies usually put the “Episode (Roman numerals here)” in the opening crawl of the movie. Lucasfilm never used the Roman numerals for posters and VHS/DVD boxart.
I remember in the first Star Wars movie they didn’t use the subtitle and roman numerals for the box art of VHS/DVD’s and they just called it “Star Wars”… they only used “Episode IV: A new Hope” for the opening crawl.
It’s just their sneaky little marketing strategy.
I expect Disney/Lucasfilm to release a teaser sometime at the end of the year… probably around Christmas. What big movie will the teaser trailer be attached to??? Since “Star Wars Episode VII” is Disney, they’ll probably attach it to “Into The Woods” w/ Johnny Depp or they could put it in front of the new “Hobbit” movie, either one.
Once again, I hope JJ don’t let us down. I’m praying for a great Star Wars movie here.
