Welp. Star Wars Episode VII, helmed by none other than J.J. Abrams, finished wrapping filming last week. And today? Today the team have revealed the official title card. Star Wars Episode VII is currently titled (as this could easily change as the release date approaches) ‘The Force Awakens‘.
Interestingly, if this title card is any indicator, it looks as if Disney may not be marketing this as “Episode VII”. Or I may be reading into things too far. Regardless, ‘The Force Awakens‘ is both very ambiguous (as has always been the case with Star Wars titles) and particularly thought provoking. What exactly about the Force is awaking? Is it that all of a sudden the Force is capable of being used by more people? Is some new form of the Force being tapped into? Or perhaps it’s merely the story of a Jedi awakening/reawakening his own abilities with the Force. Guess we’ll have to wait until December 18, 2015 to find out.
In other news, I’m hearing from multiple sources that the first full trailer for The Force Awakens is cut and finished. We’ll be seeing something on that very soon I reckon.
