Ain't It Cool News

It's never enough for us Star Wars fans! With the cast for Star Wars: Episode VII just announced last week, our attention now turns to other aspects of the film, such as "What's the story?" and "What's the title?" Well we may have an idea on that now as Ain't It Cool News brings word from a source that the working title for "Episode VII" is "The Ancient Fear," which they say refers to Max von Sydow's character who will serve as the villain of the film. This lacks confirmation from the studio, of course, and we likely won't hear anything official until San Diego Comic-Con, but for the time being sound off below with your thoughts!
Set to star John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow in addition to original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker, Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J Abrams from a script he co-wrote with Lawrence Kasdan. It will open in wide release on December 18, 2015.
