The word from LucasFilm is that we finally have the new title of the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII. The name will be: The Force Awakens. Given that we haven’t seen a Jedi other than Luke, Obi-Wan and Yoda in the Original Trilogy; the title suggests that the Force Is Strong with this film. I can’t wait to speculate on what we’ll be seeing in the newest film!

Abrams. The film is due out December 18th, 2015 and will star: John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Gweondoline Christie, Max von Sydow, Crystal Clarke, Pip Anderson, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.
