7 reasons we can’t wait for Star Wars: Episode VII

    Having WHAT to do with Apple, exactly?

    And “The Ancient Fear” is as clichéd and generic a name as is imaginable. “An ancient evil awakens…” and all that, you know?

    Screw shooting on film. Shooting digitally isn’t what cartoonized the visuals of the prequel trilogy in the slightest. It was Lucas’ hubris and lack of talent.

      Shooting and projecting digitally may have come on in leaps and bounds, but I still don’t think you can beat film. Although the hubris comment makes me want to up vote you just the same. :)

      Interesting point about The Ancient Fear, but I don’t think it sounds bad at all. You don’t think The Empire Strikes Back or A New Hope would sound cliched if we’d not heard them so many times we’ve got used to them?

        Oh, I certainly get the point about names; how many people thought iPad was terrible the first time they heard it (Actually, I still prefer ‘Slice’ for Apple’s tablet name. Apple Slice.)? But still. I imagine whatever name they choose will make more sense come the first trailer. This rumored name sounds to me like they decided to stick with the Yuuzhan Vong invasion storyline…

    “While not necessarily the final confirmed title”

    A) What does that even mean? The final confirmed title is a yes/no state. That’s like saying, “while not necessarily confirmed pregnant”

    B) It’s nowhere near a final confirmed title – you’re going off Harry Knowles?

    C) http://www.slashfilm.com/star-wars-prequels-miniatures/ Yup – a stunning lack of practical effects.
