Earlier this week, Jett Lucas, son of ‘The Beard,’ revealed that his father had been working on a new Star Wars film over a year before Lucasfilm was bought out by Disney. Well, Latino Review has the scoop on two working titles that George Lucas was using for Episode VII.
The report claims that the two ideas that Lucas was toying with were Return of the Sith and Rise of the Jedi. Both working titles were passed on to Disney when they purchased Lucasfilm and the rights to all Star Wars properties. Still, there’s no guarantee that either of these two titles will be used for the upcoming film; it just means that these were the two titles that Lucas was working with.
Personally, it seems that Rise of the Jedi is a far better fit, especially considering how Return of the Jedi ends, with Luke looking to bring back the Jedi in the future. Plus, Return of the Sith just sounds like Return of the Jedi and Revenge of the Sith got together to make a slightly incestuous baby.
Either way, directed by J.J. Abrams, from a script by Michael Arndt, Star Wars: Episode VII is currently targeting a late 2015 release.
