The New Star Wars Film Gets a Name

A fanboy alert struck earlier today as director JJ Abrams’ latest addition to the Star Wars Universe (Episode VII) released its official subtitle today.  The movie, set for release in December 2015, will be called:  Star Wars Episode VII — The Force Awakens.

While nothing about the plot was released or officially confirmed today, Abrams and crew have given Star Wars fans everywhere a reason to buzz, ponder, speculate, hypothesize, etc. all sorts of things about the apparent implications of this rather plain subtitle.

While I’m completely stoked about the upcoming film, I also don’t want to know anything about it.  I  know about some of the returning characters, and about the new cast, but I don’t want major plot spoilers.  I will, of course, try avoid the spoilers as much as possible until that inevitable jerk gets a hold of some juicy kernel of info and spews it all over the fanboy pages, which will inevitably get picked up by the web media, and suddenly be all over the Internets before you know it.

I hope we’ll be able to get through Interstellar, The Hunger Games–Mockingjay, Part 1, and the last Hobbit film before the new Star Wars gets spoiled!  Though, it’s one thing to be told what’s coming, but something else entirely to experience it — I knew a major plot spoiler about Liam Neeson’s character in Episode I, but was still pretty shocked when I saw it on screen.
